KARACHI: The president of Pakistan occupied Kashmir, Sardar Mohammad Yaqoob Khan, has said India is against peace and progress in the subcontinent.

According to the Dawn, Khan urged the global community to keep a close watch on Indian policies in the region.

He also praised the Government of Pakistan for taking a stand against India on the Kashmir issue.

Khan claimed that India had backed out of the NSA-level talks because Pakistan had concrete proof of RAW’s involvement in acts of terrorism in Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Sindh.

A statement issued by Pakistan Foreign Office on Saturday said the proposed talks will not serve any purpose if conducted on the basis of what it called "preconditions" laid down by India.

Khan also accused India of being against the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, saying New Delhi was trying to sabotage the project because it did not want to see economic progress in the region.
