Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has reworded Islamabad’s commitment to playing an important role for promoting peace and stability in the region, while he continues his week-long multi-country trip in the wake of the increasing tensions between the United States and Iran.
The foreign minister said that he has visited Iran, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Oman, the US and Qatar on the directives of Prime Minister Imran Khan. He told media that he had a “constructive engagement” with stakeholders on various “efforts to defuse tensions and promote peace in the Middle East”.
“I took Pakistan’s message to all: we stand for peace and stability in the region,” he added.
During the visit, the foreign minister also held meetings with the top tier of the United Nations and briefed members of the UN Security Council on human rights violations in Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJ&K) following the Narendra Modi-led government’s decision to revoke the occupied region’s special status and imposing a draconian lockdown.
Qureshi further said he met with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in New York and underscored the “critical importance of the international community’s continued attention to the sufferings of Kashmiris under Indian occupation.
He also urged for the Kashmir conflict to be resolved in line with the UN resolutions and the will of the Kashmiri people.
