This was stated by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi while chairing a high level meeting at Foreign Office in Islamabad on Thursday. The meeting also discussed the global epidemic situation, regional and national security and Pakistan’s efforts for lasting peace in Afghanistan. The Foreign Minister said that the extremist face of India has been exposed to the world and voices are also being raised within India against Indian government. He said the world is engaged in dealing with a global epidemic, but on the other hand, India wants to destroy the peace and stability of the region through its Hindutva policies. The Foreign Minister said that Pakistan will continue to play its conciliatory role in Afghan Peace Process with sincerity to establish peace in the neighboring country. Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the government is using all resources to control the spread of coronavirus. He said we, as a nation must defeat this global epidemic following precautionary measures issued by the government. The meeting was attended by Adviser on National Security Moeed Yousaf, Foreign Secretary Sohail Mahmood, senior civil and military officials. Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says Pakistan will give an immediate befitting response to India if it carries out any misadventure against it. In a statement on Thursday, he said Pakistan is quite capable to defend itself. The Minister said Indian rulers consider Pakistan as a soft target, but Pakistan is not a soft target. He said India’s continuous ceasefire violations on the Line of Control is part of its planned strategy aimed at diverting people’s attention from its failures. Shah Mahmood Qureshi said if India believes that Pakistan will withdraw its support to Kashmiris due to its threats, it is mistaken. He said Pakistan wants resolution of the Kashmir issue and it will continue raising voice over India’s barbarism against Kashmiris. He said Pakistan holds a principled stance and the international environment supports Pakistan’s stance. He said the resolutions of the UN Security Council and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation strengthen Pakistan’s principled stance on Kashmir. The Foreign Minister Pakistan desires peace and stability in the region, and it is focused to take forward the Afghan peace process.
