ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Friday visited the residence of Shaheed Captain Junaid Irfan in Rawalpindi and paid tributes to the martyr for rendering his life for the security of the homeland.
Speaking on the occasion, FM Qureshi said the entire nation was proud of its martyrs who gave their lives for a better future of the country.
“The vibrant nations always remember their martyrs. These are our personnel who registered unprecedented successes in the war on terrorism which others could not do despite in possession of modern technology,” he said.
The foreign minister said Prime Minister Imran Khan would also visit the family of a martyr in Muzaffarabad today. The PM will then visit the Line of Control and spend the Defence Day of Pakistan with the soldiers and officers of Pakistan Army.
On August 17, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had said the Pakistani nation was ready to respond to any Indian false flag operation.
Addressing media in Islamabad, Shah Mehmood Qureshi had said Pakistan held the right to respond to any aggression.
“India could stage a Pulwama-like drama once again. This is a long battle which we have to fight at every front. Kashmir desk is being established at every important embassy of Pakistan in the world and a Kashmir cell will be created at the Foreign Office as well to spread awareness on this issue,” he had said.
He had termed the UN Security Council meeting, held a day earlier, as encouraging. “It is such a major development that people cannot gauge it at the moment. The meeting was held despite India’s opposition to it.”
FM Qureshi had said Pakistan had all the options available to contact any institution if and when need be. He warned that as soon as the curfew would be lifted in Kashmir, India could face a retaliation.
