Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Sunday (August 25 ) while talking to media in Khanewal said that UAE is a sympathizer of Pakistan and backs Islamabad’s stance on Kashmir conflict. He was hopeful that UAE leadership would not disappoint Islamabad once it was presented with facts about New Delhi’s atrocities in the occupied valley.
“We must understand that the UAE and India enjoy good bilateral relations with thousands of Indian expatriates working in the Gulf country. We will have to look at international ties without taking sentiments into account,” he told the media in his hometown Multan.
“However, Pakistan also enjoys cordial relations with the UAE and once we present the facts to them [about India scrapping occupied Kashmir’s semi-autonomous status and imposing a lockdown there], I am hopeful that they won’t disappoint us.”
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has received the United Arab Emirates’s (UAE) highest civilian honour, a move that has sparked outrage among rights activists over his government’s clampdown on the Muslim-majority Kashmir region administered by New Delhi.
Modi was awarded the Order of Zayed medal by the UAE’s crown prince, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, known by his initials MBZ, during a visit to the capital Abu Dhabi on Saturday, reinforcing ties between the two countries.
