Karachi: The Pakistan Economy Watch (PEW) on Thursday said giving land route to India or Afghanistan for trade would be suicidal as both countries would fan terrorism in Pakistan to destabilize it.
National security cannot be sacrificed for the regional connectivity as India and Afghanistan have always tried to destabilize Pakistan, said Dr. Murtaza Mughal, President PEW.
Land route to India or Afghanistan can fan terrorism in Pakistan and lay waste to sacrifices of masses and armed forces, he added.
Dr. Murtaza Mughal said that both of the neighbouring countries are trying to give new lease of life for terror outfits dying because of the ongoing military operation.
There are no two opinions about intentions of fundamentalist government in India which is against the existence of Pakistan, he said, adding India is supporting terrorism, blocking mega dams, and working to sabotage economic corridor which is part of her long-term policy.
He said that the Indian objections to CPEC are also a reflection of the deteriorating ties between India and Pakistan in the larger context.
