Islamabad — Pakistan has regretted Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s anti-Pakistan rhetoric during his two-day trip to Bangladesh. The Foreign Office said on Tuesday that the statements confirm Pakistan’s stance on India’s negative role.

“This only confirms Pakistan’s stance on India’s negative role against a sovereign neighbouring state,” Foreign Office spokesperson Qazi Khalilullah said in a statement.

Khalilullah added, “It is regrettable that Indian politicians not only indulge in actions that are in violation of the United Nations’ Charter but also take pride in recalling their interference in the internal affairs of other states.”

Further, the spokesperson upheld that while Pakistan believes in peaceful co-existence and maintaining good neighbourly relations with India, characterisation of bilateral relations by Prime Minister Modi as “nuisance” is unfortunate.

Modi on Sunday accused Pakistan of creating “nuisance” and “constantly” troubling India by promoting terrorism.

“Pakistan constantly disturbs India, creates nuisances, stokes terrorism ... terror incidents keep on happening,” Modi alleged in his address in Hindi to the Dhaka University students.
