Foreign Office (FO) Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria on Thursday said revelations made in the confessional statements of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav and former Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan have "unveiled India's nefarious designs" in Pakistan.

"The confessions have proven that India has been involved in supporting terrorist activities in Pakistan," the spokesperson said at the FO's weekly briefing.

A day earlier, the Army had released the 'confessional statement' of Liaquat Ali, infamously known as Ehsanullah Ehsan, who served as a spokesperson for the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and the Jamaat-ul-Ahrar (JuA) and had reportedly surrendered to the Army last week.

In his confessional statement, Ehsan claimed that the TTP and JuA have been coordinating with Indian and Afghan security agencies to move freely in Afghanistan and have been guided by the Research and Analysis Wing, India's apex spy agency, when infiltrating into Pakistan.

"It has also been revealed that [Jamaat-ul-Ahrar Leader] Omar Khalid Khorasani received medical treatment in India," Zakariya added in today's briefing.

The spokesperson further said that the "killing of 13 Indians in Afghanistan" in the United States' bombing of Nangarhar province in Afghanistan earlier this month shows that the Taliban are being supported by India.

Earlier this month, the US had dropped the 'mother of all bombs' on a suspected base of the militant Islamic State of Khorasan group, which draws most of its fighters from the TTP. Media reports said that at least 13 Indians had been killed in the attack.

"Afghani and Indian spy agencies are involved in terrorist activities in Pakistan," Zakaria repeated as he called on the international community to take notice of India’s interference in Pakistan’s internal affairs and pay heed to Ehsan's confessional statement.

The spokesperson said that the matter would be raised at all international platforms.
