Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Wednesday said Prime Minister Imran Khan sent a “brave and strong message” to the Indian leadership in response to their threatening statements following the Pulwama attack in occupied Kashmir, Radio Pakistan reported.
FM Qureshi was speaking at the inaugural ceremony of Pakistan International Airline’s (PIA) flight from Multan to Sharjah at Multan Airport when he lauded PM Imran’s address to the nation.
The foreign minister further said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has chalked out an integrated strategy to enable national institutions to stand on their own feet. Qureshi said the government will also restore the national identity of PIA.
PM Imran Khan on Tuesday – in an address to the nation – offered India an olive branch and said Islamabad was willing to act upon ‘actionable intelligence’ after sections of the Indian government and media accused the country of being involved in the Pulwama suicide attack in occupied Kashmir.
Reiterating his resolve for a peaceful neighbourhood, the premier said Islamabad had nothing to gain from the attack and would act against any individual who used Pakistani soil to plan or execute the attack.
