Radio Pakistan reported that FM Qureshi stressed that India and Pakistan must resume bilateral dialogue and undertake negotiations to promote regional peace. While speaking on Pakistan Television, FM Qureshi stated, “War, which has always brought destruction, cannot be considered as an option, particularly when both the countries are nuclear powers.”

Highlighting the plight of innocent Kashmiris dying at the hands of the barbaric Indian occupation forces, FM Qureshi regretted, “Kashmir is burning as India is trying to suppress the voice of Kashmiris through military presence and its black laws.” He stressed that in the modern age of electronic media and the internet, India cannot suppress the voice of the Kashmiris, who seek their right to self-determination.

FM Qureshi will also address the session, along with holding bilateral dialogue with multiple foreign ministers attending the summit, along with the Secretary-General of the SCO.

Foreign Minister, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, stressed that the Kashmiri struggle for right to self-determination has been supported and validated by the support of the European Union and the United Nations.

Pakistan’s top diplomat also shed light on the Kulbhushan Jadhav case, stating, “Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav had confessed that he was involved in subversive activities in Pakistan.” Qureshi added that New Delhi wanted Jadhav’s release but he will be trialed for his crimes, according to Pakistan’s laws.
