(2017-09-05) In response to a question regarding the BRICS’ leaders summit document, the Spokesperson said that Pakistan is also seriously concerned about the threat posed by terrorism and extremism in the South Asian region. Many terrorist groups based in the region, including in Afghanistan, such as the TTP and its associates like JuA have been responsible for extreme acts of violence against Pakistani people. We are deeply concerned at the presence of groups like Daesh, ETIM and IMU in the ungoverned spaces in Afghanistan as they pose a threat to peace and security in the region. Pakistan also remains concerned at the rise of extremist ideologies and intolerance in the region encouraging social stratification and systematic targeting of minorities. Islamabad 5 Sept 2017
