Pakistan also pursues a policy of friendly neighbourhood and believes in resolution of disputes through dialogue and UN resolutions. Nasser Janjua also held high-level inter-ministerial talks with Secretary of Russian Federation, Nikolai Patrushev in Moscow.
Highlighting the flashpoints, he questioned the Forum that can anyone work out price Afghanistan, Pakistan, Egypt, Libya, Syria and Yemen have paid and continue to pay for war inflicted upon them.
He categorically pointed out “Whether someone can see what is happening to innocent Kashmiris, Palestinians and Rohingya Muslims and whether someone can hear cries of Kashmiris or are they just falling on numb and dumb conscience of world.”
The world of today is locked in a cycle of escalation and provocation and is only sub-servient to its self-interests, he added. Elaborating upon Pakistan’s contributions to ensure global peace and security, he counted upon successes achieved by Pakistan, its Armed Forces, Law Enforcement Agencies and people.
