development & connectivity: Qureshi

ISLAMABAD, (MANEND NEWS): In his message on Pakistan Day,
Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that
Pakistan is committed to pursue policies that promote peace and
stability, development and connectivity.
He said rather than partaking in geo political competition and rivalries,
Pakistan is advocating co-existence and win-win cooperation. The
Foreign Minister also reaffirmed Pakistan’s support for Kashmiris in
their just struggle for right to self-determination.

“23rd March is an important landmark in the history of our nation. On
this day, we commemorate the valiant struggle of our forefathers for a
separate homeland that began with the historic Pakistan Resolution of
1940, and culminated in the attainment of freedom seven years later”
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said.
He said that Pakistan Resolution truly reflects our deep national and
historical aspirations and desires. On this Day, we pay rich tribute to
the Father of the Nation and all leaders, elders, martyrs and heroes
who rendered great sacrifices for the realization of our dream, he said.
“This Day provides us an opportunity every year to renew our
commitment to making our country a true welfare, progressive and
prosperous state” Shah Mahmood Qureshi said.
“On this Day, I wish to reiterate that Pakistani leadership’s vision of
‘Naya Pakistan’ is focused around economic security – for the well-
being and welfare of our people. While fully resolved to protect our
vital national security interests, our emphasis is shifting from geo-
strategic to geo-economics. Rather than partaking in geo-political
competition and rivalries, Pakistan is advocating co-existence and win-
win cooperation. Pakistan is committed to pursue policies that promote
peace and stability, development partnerships, and connectivity” he
said.
“Today, we also express solidarity and support to our Kashmiri
brothers and sisters in their just struggle for the right to self-
determination as enshrined in the relevant United Nations Security
Council (UNSC) Resolutions” Shah Mahmood Qureshi said.
“While the Covid-19 pandemic has presented unprecedented
challenges to the world, it has also offered new opportunities for
international solidarity and cooperation. Pakistan continues to
underscore the need for greater global collaboration to decisively
defeat this menace” he said.
“Nations have to go through difficult times, but only with unity they
sail through. We, Pakistanis, have exhibited tremendous responsibility
in fighting the pandemic. As the virus continues to threaten lives, we
cannot afford to overlook the importance of preventive measures. May
Allah keep Pakistan and all of mankind safe. Pakistan Paindabad!”
Shah Mahmood Qureshi concluded.
