ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Tuesday said Kashmir was a disputed territory and any demographic changes in the Indian Occupied Kashmir wouldn’t be acceptable to Pakistan as well as Kashmiri people.
Talking to the media persons in Islamabad, Qureshi regretted that India was neither ready to hold talks bilaterally with Pakistan on Kashmir dispute nor did it accept the third party mediation.

With regard to the Afghan peace process, the foreign minister said Pakistan was not a guarantor but only facilitator in it. He said the entire onus of the Afghan peace process could not be put on Pakistan.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Pakistan maintained that it was the shared responsibility of all the stakeholders to take forward the Afghan peace process.
The foreign minister said Prime Minister Imran Khan wanted to have a meeting with the Taliban to woo them for the intra Afghan dialogue. He said Pakistan was moving forward in good faith.
Furthermore, he said a Conference of African Envoys would be organized at the Foreign Office after the UN General Assembly Session in September. He said their aim was to prepare a far reaching Look Africa Policy to improve trade and economic relations with the African Countries.
Qureshi said the Commerce Advisor had also taken a very important decision of shifting the Commercial Consulars in Europe to the African Countries in order to exploit the trade potential with that important continent.
