    BEGIN: "We are talking about a completely independent country, --which was invaded by tens of thousands of soldiers, thousands of guns and tanks with rockets, etcetera. And this is the country which uses anti-Imperialist philosophy, carrying out such an Imperialist act of naked, cynical aggression. Through Baluchistan, they can reach the Indian ocean. This is an event which turned the whole region and its periphery into turmoil."
