Relations between Pakistan & Egypt based on bonds of common faith &
culture: Qureshi

ISLAMABAD, (MANEND NEWS): Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah
Mahmood Qureshi has said that relations between Pakistan and Egypt
are based on bonds of common faith and culture and similarity of
perception on many regional and global issues.
In an exclusive interview with “Ahram Online”, Shah Mahmood Qureshi
said Pakistan and Egypt have dynamic economies with robust rates of
growth. He said our emerging markets are poised to play a pivotal
role in promoting global trade and economic cooperation.
He said Pakistan looks forward to establishing collaborative
mechanisms to promote trade and economic cooperation with Egypt.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Pakistan’s vision for the Middle East,
as well as South Asia, is of peace and development.
He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan has stressed that war is in no
one’s interest and also made it clear that Pakistan would not be part of
any conflict in the region but will be a partner for peace.
He said, we will continue to make efforts for peace on the basis of
these principles.
Foreign Minister said the non-resolution of long-standing disputes, in
particular the dispute of India’s illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir
lies at the core of Pakistan-India relations.
He said the Kashmir dispute needs to be resolved in accordance with
the UN Security Council resolutions and wishes of the Kashmiri people.

Foreign Minister said, instead of granting Kashmiris their legitimate
rights, India has resorted to illegal and unilateral actions. Particularly,
in the past two years, there have been unprecedented human rights
violations and attempts to change the demographic structure of the
occupied territory.
