Pakistani High Commissioner to New Delhi has said peace process between Pakistan and India is suspended at present, terming the arrest of Indian spy proof of the country’s long-held stance regarding terrorism.

“As far as I know there is no meeting scheduled between foreign secretaries [of the two countries] yet,” Abdul Basit said, while addressing an event at the Foreign Correspondents Club of South Asia in New Delhi.

Basit said the recent arrest of Indian spy Kulbhushan Yadav irrefutably corroborated what Pakistan had been saying all along, ANI News reported.

“We all are aware of those who seek to create unrest in Pakistan and destabilise the country,” the HC said adding, “They’re bound to fail as the people of Pakistan are united to effectively counter anti-Pakistan subversive activities.”
