MUNICH: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi commented on assault in Pulwama, Kashmir and urged that if New Delhi “desired peace and stability in the regino or political point-scoring with consideration on the upcoming elections?”
Talking on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference, Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that the first info I acquired was that this incident [the attack in Pulwama, Kashmir] had occurred.
“I was mourning and sorrowful regarding the lack of life the people had been affected by it there had been been force of the Central Reserve Police [Force (CRPF)], and that death toll and injuries were alarming.
Pakistan has a crystal clear view in this regard that peaceful relations be maintained in neighbors and violence may be avoided to great extent as this was never a part of our intentions. He further said that violence was neither a part of our strategy in past not in future.
Mr. Qureshi commented that India should have acted further responsibly and engaged themselves with Pakistan by sharing proof.
“Now, I’m a bit sad that India did not even full a probe into the incident, there was no investigation, however there was a knee-jerk — an instant response, whereby they leveled accusations against Pakistan.
At present, Islamabad’s focus was on the western entrance, he added and “we’re engaged in pushing the peace stability in Afghanistan.
“Resulting from this truth, it doesn’t make sense to shift focus from the western border. He urged the Indian authorities and its ministers to take a breather and look inwards.
“There are huge voices even from inside India, who want the federal authorities to oversee their counterproductive actions that is, the atrocities [and] human rights violations.
“Due to the acute use of drive, the response is coming in Indian-occupied Kashmir” he added.
The minister talked about that the newly elected administration of PTI intends to maintain peace inside the region and good relations with India due to the interior challenges and domestic agenda of Pakistan. The “PTI authorities has altogether different priorities”, he added.
Prime Minister Imran Khan is very clear that we do not help militants [and] non-state actors working in direction of the contemplating of the federal authorities,” the minister underscored.
