Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says Pakistan is hopeful for success of peace deal between the United States and Afghan Taliban which would be signed on 29th of this month in Doha.

Talking to media persons in Multan on Sunday, he said Pakistan made sincere efforts in bringing the US and Taliban on negotiation table for establishing peace in war torn Afghanistan.

The Foreign Minister said Pakistan always convinced the world that there is no military solution of Afghan issue and it could only be resolved through dialogue.

He said some powers do not want peace in Afghanistan and they are conspiring against peace process by disturbing law and order through bomb blasts in the country.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said such powers are spoilers and there is need to avoid and foil their nefarious designs.

He said when there is peace in Afghanistan, rebuilding process will be initiated and Pakistan will also take part in it.

Responding to a question, he said the incumbent government brought the Kashmir issue in the limelight at the UN Security Council meeting after five decades.

The issue was also taken up at different forums including the US Congress and House of Commons.

The Foreign Minister said India cannot succeed in its nefarious designs to push Pakistan into Blacklist of Financial Action Task Force.

He said all the member countries except India, were satisfied with the steps taken by Pakistan government.
