Iran invites Pakistan, China to join India in Chabahar port project

A statement issued by Pakistan's foreign office following a meeting between Zarif and his counterpart Khawaja Asif on Monday said both sides had "reiterated support for the peaceful struggle of the peoples of Palestine and Kashmir for their right to self-determination". According to sources, a auto carrying unaccompanied underage children of a diplomat was made to stop on a busy main road in the Indian capital Tuesday; the children were harassed by unknown individuals for over an hour.

Pakistan has summoned India's Deputy High Commissioner J P Singh over the alleged harassment of officials and families of the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi, according to Pakistan Foreign Affairs Ministry.

"For psychological intimidation, videos and photographs of the children were constantly made for 40 minutes, leaving the children extremely traumatised". Pakistan High Commission again raised the issue with the MEA. In another incident, the vehicle of another senior counselor was forcefully stopped by an unknown individual who then disembarked and took pictures of the counselor.

The statement describes how previously, on March 7 and 8, the children of the officers of the High Commission were harassed while returning from school. That evening, the First Secretary was aggressively followed when he left work for his residence. However, a source here said Indian diplomats in Islamabad were being regularly tailed and intimidated. The considerations go beyond economic gain because of the triad of relations between Pakistan and Iran, Iran and India, and India and Pakistan.

Faisal emphasised that under the Vienna Convention, the safety and the security of Pakistani diplomats and their families is the responsibility of the Indian Government.

Zarif sought to allay Pakistan's concerns about India's involvement in Chabahar by saying that the port project was not meant to "encircle Pakistan" or "strangulate anybody".

During his three-day visit, Zarif has been pushing Pakistan to play its role in defusing the tensions in the region and contribute to materialisation of a new paradigm of "understanding and inclusion" that he calls "a neighbourhood paradigm".
