Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Indian Minister of External Affairs, Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday (May 22) held an informal meeting at the end of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).
“I told Sushma Ji that we are still firm on the statement of PM Khan that if India takes one step forward, Pakistan would reciprocate with two,” Qureshi informed a gathering of Pakistani community in Bishkek about his meeting. “Sushma Ji pointed that I sometimes speak harsh so she has brought some sweets for me so that I talk sweet,” Qureshi said. “In response, I said we are positive on holding negotiations with your country on all issues,” he added.
Earlier during the SCO meeting, Qureshi was seated next to Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj. The meeting was briefly attended by Kyrgyzstan President Sooronbay Jeenbekov who said it was an honour for the country to host the Council of Foreign Ministers of Shanghai Cooperating Organization.
