India is self-seeking a two front situation: Lt Gen (r) Nasser Khan Janjua
18 November, 2017
ISLAMABAD: Adviser to the PM on National Security Lt Gen (r) Nasser Khan Janjua on Friday cautioned India against creating a ‘two-front situation’ for Pakistan, insisting such a policy would be detrimental for regional peace.
The NSA made the remarks while speaking to the visiting Special Representative of Federal Republic of Germany for Afghanistan and Pakistan Markus Potzel, accompanied by German Ambassador Martin Kobler.
An official hand-out issued by the NSA office said the two sides discussed the regional security situation and the prevailing situation in Afghanistan.
The statement said the German envoy sought the NSA’s opinion on matters pertaining to the regional security situation with particular reference to Pakistan and India.
Gen Janjua said: “For regional peace and stability, it is imperative for both the countries to engage with each and resolve their disputes.”
“By resolving their disputes, both the countries need to belong to the future,” the NSA told the visiting German diplomat.
He explained how the region’s security construct was fast becoming under stress. He said the ‘two front situation’ was being created for Pakistan.
“India is self-seeking a two front situation which does not auger well for the region. All major powers of the world need to play their role in keeping the region stable and balanced.” By the two front situation, Pakistan means that India may put the country under pressure both from the eastern and western frontiers.
