ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Saturday said negotiations for the settlement of Afghanistan issue were in progress and they wished success of the peace dialogue.
While addressing the first session of National Zakariya Conference in Multan, the foreign minister maintained that the Afghan people had suffered bloodshed for the long period which should have been ended now.
The foreign minister further said the entire nation was standing with the Kashmiri people in their struggle of freedom. He said they prayed for the independence of Jammu and Kashmir.
Earlier last night while talking to a Private News Channel, Qureshi asked the Chief of Jamiat-e-Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) Maulana Fazlur Rehman to avoid march towards Islamabad on October 27 as it was the day of expressing solidarity with Kashmiri people.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi suggested Maulana Fazlur Rehman to review the date of his march so that Kashmir cause should not be disturbed on the same day.
The foreign minister said India had occupied the valley on October 27, and on the same date, the JUI-F Chief was launching the march towards Islamabad which could damage the Kashmir cause and Pakistan.
