ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Thursday said Pakistan remained committed to its core objective of lowering tensions and promoting peace and stability in the region.
Addressing a seminar in Islamabad, he said that Pakistan would not become a party in any regional conflict and would continue to support negotiated settlement of all regional disputes.
He said conflicts were not in favour of any country and dialogue was only viable option to bring peace and stability to the region.
The foreign minister said that Pakistan was a peace-loving nation and wanted 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 the BJP-led fascist regime in the Occupied Kashmir had endangered the regional peace and stability.
He recalled that Pakistan’s forces responded to Indian aggression with full bravery and strength in February 2019.
The foreign minister said recent spree of violence in New Delhi had badly exposed anti-Muslims and Hindutva ideology of the BJP government.
Talking about landmark peace accord inked in Doha, he said the agreement validated Prime Minister Imran Khan’s long-held narrative that there was 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 their religious holy site, and the peace initiative got recognition at international level.
