ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Foreign Office has said that Pakistan looks forward to a mutually beneficial, uninterrupted dialogue with India to resolve all issues.
In response to a query regarding the controversy being unnecessarily created by sections of the Indian media, the Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal stressed on Monday that the Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had not stated in his Press Conference earlier in the day that “the Indian prime minister had made an offer of a dialogue” but had said that the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his letter to his Pakistani Counterpart Imran Khan had also mentioned something similar to what the foreign minister elucidated earlier i.e. that the way forward was only through constructive engagement.
The spokesperson said that the foreign minister was also briefed about the same positivity and constructive environment prevailing during the meeting of the former Minister of Law & Information with the Indian External Affairs Minister during his visit to India on August 18, 2018 to attend the funeral of the former Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
“Any attempts to instigate controversy and vitiate the environment are counter – productive and against the spirit of responsible journalism,” Dr Faisal said.
