Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that Pakistan's viewpoint has successfully been propagated on the international stage owing to Islamabad's "proactive approach".

Addressing a political gathering in Multan, Qureshi said Washington had acknowledged Pakistan's efforts for lasting peace in Afghanistan.

"Our Prime Minister has successfully presented our [Pakistan's] narrative in the best way possible," he said.

The PTI leader paid tribute to the 10 Pakistan Army soldiers martyred in Saturday's terrorist attacks in Balochistan and North Waziristan.

He said the development process in the tribal districts had started with funds earmarked in this year's budget for its development.

He also announced three development projects for Multan.

Earlier in the day, Qureshi said US President Donald Trump’s offer to mediate between Pakistan and India on the Kashmir issue exceeded Islamabad’s expectations.

According to Radio Pakistanthe foreign minister told a private news channel that the proposition for the US to act as a mediator came from India, but the Modi government had backtracked from its stance owing to political opposition.

He said PM Imran used the meeting with President Trump to reaffirm Pakistan’s commitment to peace in the region, particularly with India.
