According to the statement issued by the Foreign Office of Pakistan, Islamabad approached the United Nations (UN) for designating four Indian nationals as the global terrorists in 2019.
The spokesperson of the Foreign Office Ayesha Farooqui, while responding to the media queries, said that the government of Pakistan had proposed the inclusion of the four Indian nationals in the United Nations 1267 Sanctions List in 2019.
The four Indian nationals included Venumadhav Dongara, Ajoy Mistry, Gobinda Patnaik, and Angara Appaji.
The spokesperson said that these four Indian nationals were financing, sponsoring, and organizing terrorism inside Pakistan by providing financial, technical, and material support to the terrorist groups including TTP, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, others.
“We are disappointed that the proposal by the Pakistani government to designate Venumadhav Dongara as a global terrorist has been objected to,” the spokesperson Ayesha Farooqui said
She said that Pakistan hopes that the listing requests of the other three Indian nationals will be given due consideration by the United Nations Security Council 1267 Sanctions Committee in an objective and transparent manner.
She further pointed out that taking advantage of the prolonged conflict in the country’s neighborhood, India has fomented terrorism inside Pakistani territory by providing training, financial, and material support to the several terrorist groups to demonstrate terrorism in Pakistan to kill the innocent people of the country.
“These Indian nationals are now residing in India with impunity which vindicates Pakistan’s position that India is a state-sponsor of terrorism,” the Foreign Office’s spokesperson said.
