Pakistan strongly condemned continued killing of innocent Kashmiris in Indian Occupied Kashmir: FO

Pakistan has strongly condemned continued killing of innocent Kashmiris in Indian Occupied Kashmir. Extrajudicial killing of Kashmiri leader Burhan Wani and scores of other innocent Kashmiris is deplorable and condemnable. Such acts are a violation of fundamental human rights of Kashmiris and can not deter the people of Jammu and Kashmir from their demand for the realization of the right to self determination. Pakistan Terms Afghan President's Remarks at NATO Summit as Inaccurate and Based On Assumptions

No room for Cold War 2 in NATO

The Nato summit could not have come at a more opportune moment. Just weeks after Brexit, the European leaders and those from across the Atlantic were pondering over the indispensable issue of the continent's security, and how to keep it at a safe distance from a westward marching Russia. The Warsaw declaration will long be remembered for the assurances that Britain gave in the form of "not turning its back" on European defences, irrespective of its velvet divorce with the 28-member European Union bloc. The EU and Nato joint declarations pledged to accelerate cooperation in the face of threats from Moscow, especially after the latter's invasion and annexation of Crimea. Russia's role in Ukraine is more than enough to keep the disgruntled European Union together, as every member state fears that it could be next in line if Kremlin had its way. Apart from that leaders in Warsaw touched upon the 'hybrid threats', which include propaganda and psychological campaigns, cyber attacks and use of oil and gas pipelines as a pressure tactic in the continent. Placing of an additional 1,000 US troops on the borders of Poland inadvertently proved that Nato fears Russian designs on its sleepy northern frontiers.
