Pakistan wants to peaceful relations with all neighboring countries: FM
March 05, 2020

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says Pakistan remains committed to its core objective of lowering tensions and promoting peace and stability in the region.

Addressing a seminar in Islamabad on Thursday, he said that Pakistan will not become party in any regional conflict and would continue to support negotiated settlement of all regional disputes.

He said conflicts are not in favour of any country and dialogue is only viable option to bring peace and stability to the region.

The Foreign said that Pakistan is a peace-loving nation and wants to forge peaceful relations with all its neighboring countries, including India and Afghanistan.

Talking about Indian aggression, Shah Mahmood Qureshi expressed regret that unilateral and illegal actions taken by BJP-led fascist regime in Occupied Kashmir have endangered the regional peace and stability.

He recalled that Pakistan's forces responded to Indian aggression with full bravery and strength in February last year.

The Foreign Minister said recent spree of violence in New Delhi has badly exposed anti-Muslims and Hindutva ideology of the BJP government.

Talking about landmark peace accord inked in Doha, he said the agreement vindicated Prime Minister Imran Khan's long-held narrative that there is no military solution to Afghan conflict and only politically-negotiated settlement can promote peace in the war-torn country.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Islamabad opened Kartarpur Corridor to allow Sikh Pilgrims to visit to their religious holy site, and this peace initiative got recognition at international level.
