‘Jaish chief Masood Azhar is in Pak’, admits foreign minister, then says ‘he is very unwell’


Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi admitted that Masood Azhar, the head of the terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed, is in Pakistan.

“He (Masood Azhar) is in Pakistan, according to my information, he is very bad, he is not well insofar as he can not leave his house because he is really sick, so that is the information I have,” said Qureshi to CNN in an interview.

The comments of Pakistan’s foreign minister came as France, the United Kingdom and the United States launched a new offer at the UN to include Masood Azhar, founder of the Jaish who assumed responsibility for the February 14 terrorist attack in Pulwama, as a global terrorist, although China remained out -Commitment to support the movement.

Qureshi claimed that Pakistan will take action against the head of Jaish if India provides “strong and inalienable evidence”. “If you provide us with evidence that is acceptable to the courts of Pakistan … after all, we will have to justify going to court.” If you have strong and inalienable evidence, share it with us so we can convince Pakistan’s independent judiciary “, He said.

France is leading the last and fourth attempt to put Azhar on the black list of the 1267 UN Committee that already includes the JeM, which he founded after being freed by India in 1999 in exchange for passengers on an Air India flight kidnapped to Kandahar.

China blocked three previous attempts, citing the rules of Resolution 1267 of the UN Security Council and the lack of evidence and consensus. A spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry did not compromise when asked if Beijing would block the latest move to include Azhar.

Qureshi said Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s decision to release Indian Air Force pilot Abhinandan Varthaman was a “gesture of goodwill” and an expression of Pakistan’s “readiness to reduce escalation.” ” Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan had announced on Thursday that wing commander Abhinandan Varthaman will be released on Friday after New Delhi sought his unconditional release, immediately and without damage, indicating a reduction in the spiral of tension with New Delhi.
