October 21, 2019

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi called on Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar at his office here on Monday. On the occasion, both the leaders strongly condemned unprovoked firing on the civilian population by the Indian army at LoC and paid tributes to the bravery of the Pak army for giving a befitting reply. Both also paid tributes to the sacrifices rendered by martyred Lance Naik Zahid and other citizens. The chief minister said that Pak army has given a lesson to the wicked enemy by sending Indian army men to hell as Pakistan’s armed forces are ever-ready to defend the beloved motherland. India should fully understand that the Pak army has the fullest capability to give a befitting reply to Indian aggression as 22 crore people are with the armed forces of Pakistan, added Usman Buzdar. He expressed the satisfaction that Pakistan army has incurred heavy losses to the enemy by giving a timely response. The chief minister regretted that India wants to push the region to war by targeting civilians in the garb of baseless allegations. He said that targeting of civilians is a highly condemnable act and a blatant violation of all international laws. It is regrettable that India is fanning tensions through its nefarious activities, he added. He said that India is unnerved after the adoption of inhuman actions in Occupied Kashmir. The Pakistani nation pays tributes to the courage of Kashmiris living in an environment of oppression and barbarity in Occupied Kashmir and Pakistanis are standing with them like a solid rock, concluded the chief minister. Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that India wants to destroy the regional peace but the struggle of Kashmiris will materialize in Occupied Kashmir. Kashmir and Pakistan are Siamese twins and the Indian government has written a new history of barbarity and cruelty against the oppressed Kashmiris.
