ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that Pakistan remains committed to its core objective of lowering tensions and promoting peace and stability in the region.
Highlighting “Pakistan’s Vision for Peace and Stability” in his address at the Closing Session of the two-day International Seminar on “Global Strategic Threat and Response (GSTAR)” organized by the Centre for Aerospace and Security Studies (CASS) in Islamabad, the foreign minister said that Pakistan will not become party in any regional conflict and would continue to support negotiated settlement of all regional disputes.
Qureshi said that conflicts are not in favour of any Country and dialogue is the only viable option to bring peace and stability to the region.
The foreign minister said that Pakistan is a peace-loving nation and wants to forge peaceful relations with all its neighboring Countries including India and Afghanistan.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Pakistan opened the Kartarpur Corridor to allow Sikh pilgrims to visit their religious holy site, and this peace initiative got recognition at the international level.
Separately, addressing a consultative meeting in Islamabad which was convened to review the ongoing situation in Indian Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IOJ&K), the foreign minister underlined the need to highlight the prevailing tense situation in Occupied Kashmir at all international fora.
The minister expressed regret that the global community has kept mum over the massive human rights violations committed by the Indian troops in the held valley. He further said that unilateral and illegal actions taken by the BJP-led fascist regime in IOJ&K have endangered the regional peace and stability.
