Pakistan warns of serious consequences of attack on Syria

Pakistan has warned that any military attack on Syria will have serious consequences and plunge the already volatile region into deeper conflict, IRNA reported.

Speaking at his weekly news briefing in Islamabad on Thursday, Foreign Office Spokesperson Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry said the approach to address the Syrian situation should be guided by principles enshrined in the UN charter like respect for sovereignty, territorial integrity, non interference in internal matters and resolution of disputes through peaceful manner.

"Islamabad remains opposed to the use of force, urges maximum restraint from all sides and dialogue among Syrians for peaceful solution of the problem".

When asked about Pakistans stance on use of chemical weapons in Syria, the spokesperson said we regard the use of chemical weapons by any side as a matter of grave concern and condemns it in clear terms.

He said allegations of the use of chemical weapons in Syria must be interrogated. Report of the United Nations is very vital in this regard and its findings should be thoroughly examined for an acceptable way forward.

When his attention was drawn towards Washington Post regarding Pakistans nuclear arsenals, Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry dismissed the report saying it is based on incorrect assessment.

He said Pakistan is committed to the objectives of disarmament and non-proliferation. He said a robust command and control system is in place for safety and security of nuclear arsenals and installations.

He said the US state department in a recent statement has also vindicated our point. He said Pakistan follows best international practices and standards set by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

He emphasized that Pakistan and the United States are engaged in a multidimensional cooperation. Both the sides have agreed to revive the work of working groups that will lead to the resumption of strategic level in early next year.

On the expected meeting of the prime ministers of India and Pakistan on the sidelines of UN General Assembly session, the spokesperson said both the countries are in touch and working out the date. He said the meeting will provide a useful opportunity to remove the existing trust deficit in relations. Emphasizing the need for dialogue for settlement of outstanding issues, he said disruption of dialogue benefits only those who do not want peace.

On the tension with India at the Line of Control, Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry said Pakistan has expressed grave concerns over the violations on the Line of Control by India and urged it to respect the 2003 ceasefire agreement.

When asked about Pakistani prisoners in Bagram prison, the spokesperson said Islamabad is in contact with the Afghan and US authorities for the early release and transfer of these prisoners to Pakistan.
