Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi left for Germany on Wednesday to attend the Munich Security Conference 2019 where he will present Pakistan’s stance on Afghanistan.
The Munich Security Conference discusses and analyses the global security situation and is attended by foreign ministers, defence ministers and experts.
“Afghan President Ashraf Ghani will be present at the conference and I will meet him. He will present Afghanistan’s stance in a panel discussion and I will present Pakistan’s stance.”
The foreign minister said he would also meet a US delegation of lawmakers. “US, Pakistan relations have entered an important phase. Since day one I have worked towards resetting relations and there has been progress.”
Qureshi stressed that recent statements by the US were encouraging. “Instead of pointing the finger at Pakistan, the role is now being praised. The world is appreciating Pakistan’s efforts for peace in Afghanistan.”
The minister also said he would be meeting with the foreign ministers of Russia, Germany, Canada, and Uzbekistan. “I will also try meeting Mogherini who represents the European Union on foreign affairs so Pakistan’s and EU plan for strategic enhancement can be finalized.”
