New Delhi, Jan 11: Iran has claimed that it continues to supply oil in India
India continues to import oil from Iran and other stakeholders also as far as India’s energy security is concerned. We are engaged with all the stakeholders since the imposition of US sanctions on Iran. We have had several rounds of meeting with Iran and other stakeholders.
Said External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar in New Delhi in his weekly media briefing.
When asked about extradition of Zakir Naik from Malaysia he said, the issue of extradition of Zakir Naik discussed when Malaysian leader Anwar Ibrahim met PM also Malaysian leader said that more evidence required to follow up on that request.
High commission is in touch with Malaysian authorities to expedite the extradition it is a process which any country has to follow. We continue to maintain close touch with Malaysian authorities with this regard.
Pakistan Prime Minister recently gave a statement that he is in favour of talks with India but as elections are ahead in India we can not proceed further.
In reply to this question, Raveesh Kumar said, If Pakistan wants talks with India then why their union leaders share a platform with terrorists who are designated as international terrorists.
On 30th September Religious Affairs Minister of Pakistan shared the stage with Hafiz Sayeed both of them gave petrolic, anti-India statements. Other Interim Minister had met with Jamaat-ud-Dawa leader in December 2018. They openly declare support to Hafiz Said.
If Pakistan is ready for talks then why they not taking any action against Mumbai and Pathankot attack culprits. Why they allow a terrorist group to use their territories. JUD’s NGO allowed opening their centres in POK. Pakistan is giving explicit support to banned globally banned terrorist organisations.
It is trying these organisation to settle in the mainstream.
Pakistan should be the last country in the world to lecture us on the topic of the plurality and inclusive society. We and the world are fully aware of minorities are treated in that country.
