Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that Pakistan enjoyed great relations with all its neighbors, except India, which is led by an extremist government that wants the Hindutva rule and not ready for talks.
“Pakistan is not isolated in the world. India tried to isolate Pakistan but failed,” he added. “Our relations with Saudi Arabia, Iran and Afghanistan are good.”
Closing the debate on the country’s relations with KSA, UAE and Gulf countries on a motion passed by Senator Sirajul Haq of the JI in the Senate, Qureshi suggested the opposition to not to give irresponsible statements on the Kashmir issue.
The foreign minister also said that the government wanted normal relations with India, too. “There is no denying the fact that Kashmir is the jugular vein of Pakistan. There can be no deal on Kashmir. Our government presented the Kashmir case to the international community in no uncertain terms.”
