Islamabad: Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed has blamed both the United States and India for the recent sectarian unrest in Gilgit-Baltistan.
He alleged that India aims to create a new state by combining parts of Gilgit-Baltistan with Laddakh, and added that “the US will also be able to achieve its objective of severing the road link between Pakistan and China”.
He also stressed Difa-e-Pakistan Council (DPC) will continue opposing the re-opening of the NATO supply routes.
“Our talks with the US have failed. They (the US) didn’t tender an apology over the Salala attack, nor agreed upon stopping the drone strikes. If supplies are ever resumed, it will only entrench the US further in Afghanistan,” The Express Tribune quoted Saeed, as saying.
Pakistan had shut down the NATO supply routes in retaliation to the deadly November 26 NATO airstrike.
