ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has held a telephonic conversation with the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belgium Didier Reynders on Thursday, the Dispatch News Desk (DND) news agency.
The foreign minister briefed his Belgian counterpart on the latest situation of peace and security in the region, especially in the aftermath of yesterday’s Indian aggression across the Line of Control (LoC).
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Pakistan had responded in self defence. However, further escalation was not an option.
Despite India’s war mongering, Pakistan had offered dialogue and asked the Indian side to share actionable evidence to enable us to take appropriate action.
The Belgium deputy prime minister thanked the foreign minister for the briefing and urged both Pakistan and India to take steps to de-escalate the situation and enter into dialogue to resolve all issues.
Didier Reynders further assured that Belgium would consult other EU members of the Security Council to assist in de-escalation of situation.
The two leaders agreed to remain in contact to work towards diffusion of tensions in the region.
