April 10, 2021

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says Pakistan is ready for dialogue if India ensures conducive environment.

Talking to media persons in Multan today (Saturday), he said Kashmir is the main hurdle in talks with India and he would be ready to go to New Delhi for talks if India stops brutalities in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

The Foreign Minister said, there are issues with India including Kashmir, Siachen, Water, Sir Creek and others.

He said dialogue will only be possible when India would show some flexibility and that Pakistan is not in a hurry.

The Foreign Minister said that war is not solution of issues rather dialogue should be conducted to settle problems between both the countries.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said BJP government cannot change the ideology and feelings of the Kashmiri people, and the whole world including European Union, and international human rights organizations are raising questions over India.

He said the recent ceasefire with India is benefiting people across the Line of Control.

The Foreign Minister said Pakistan opened the Kartarpur corridor as good will gesture and is ready to welcome the Sikh community for ‘Vaisakhi’ if the Indian government allows them.

Responding to a question, he said Pakistan desires peace and stability in Afghanistan and has also played its role in this regard.
