Islamabad: ‘Aasia Bibi still in Pakistan, could leave soon when asked about Aasia Bibi, the Christian woman who was acquitted by the Supreme Court over blasphemy allegations last year, Dr Faisal telling Independent Urdu said that “she is still in Pakistan but could leave soon”.”It is inaccurate to say that she has already left,” he said. “She is at a safe location in Pakistan but when there is a court order in her favor, she should leave. In my opinion, she will leave soon.”The FO spokesperson was also asked whether “the foreign policy is influenced by politics or other departments”.Dr Faisal, in his response, maintained that the foreign policy is formed at the office of foreign affairs.
“But the foreign policy is a combination of all policies, including financial, commercial and security issues,” he said. “This happens world over. A country’s security is linked with its foreign policy.”In response to a question regarding the future of Pakistan- India relations, Dr Faisal said: “Pakistan has kept a positive attitude with India even in difficult times. Whatever new government is formed in India, Pakistan would like to move forward with peace talks.”We wrote to the Indian prime minister in September 2018, and invited them for peace talks but have not received a response yet. Hopefully the newly elected government will reply to the letter.”
