Pakistan to stand by Iran in case of aggression: Kasuri

19 December 2005

ISLAMABAD ó Pakistan will stand by Iran in case of any aggression, Foreign Minister Khurshid Mahmood Kasuri has said.

Talking to newsmen, Kasuri also expressed frustration that while Pakistan has shown lot of flexibility on the Kashmir issue in talks with India, there is no reciprocal movement from India on any count.

On Iran, whose foreign minister was in Islamabad last week, Kasuri said Pakistan is strongly opposed to any attack on Iran by the United States or any other country. He said Pakistan will stand by Iran in case of any aggression.

He said Iranian foreign ministerís statement during his recent visit to Pakistan provides testimony to our policy towards Teheran.

Pakistan wants that the nuclear issue be resolved through dialogue according to the principles of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), he added.

He said Pakistan would continue its quest for acquiring latest technology and defence equipment at all costs to maintain a balance of power in the region.
