Agencies: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi announced that Pakistan is going to write to the parliamentarians of Britain and the European Union, asking them to play their part in de-escalation of the ongoing conflict with India.
“Through this press conference and the letters I ask them to play their roles. The world needs to differentiate between those who want peace and those who want war. The world is seeing that the Taliban and the US are negotiating. At this hour would we want to start a war?”
Qureshi negated the notion that international powers are not taking interest in the Pakistan-India conflict, saying: “The US has started playing its role. I have talked to Mike Pompeo and the British foreign minister. But understand India’s dilemma. There are question marks on them in their own country. How can they change their attitude at once?”
Qureshi said that the decision to release the captured Indian pilot was “Imran Khan’s own initiative and a product of his vision. “There was no international pressure and we did not affix any conditions,” he said.
