Islamabad: Pakistan on Thursday accused India of planning to "sabotage" the ambitious $46 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.

"We are aware of Indian (government's) plans to sabotage CPEC," Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said during a weekly briefing, adding that "India's interference in Pakistan is not concealed".

He added India's nuclear weapons were a threat to peace in South Asia. He also said that "Massive purchase of weapons by India could lead to instability in the region."

According to Zakaria, even Kulbhushan Yadav -- the alleged Indian spy arrested in Balochistan -- had admitted to making an attempt to affect the work on CPEC.

Zakaria said the CPEC is not only beneficial for Pakistan, but for the entire region as it was an economic project.

He also condemned Indian firing on the Line of Control, saying three Pakistani soldiers had died due to it.
