ISLAMABAD, June 15 (Online): Foreign Minister (FM) Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said Pakistan will not allow its soil to be used against any other country.

“Pakistan will not allow its soil to be used against any other country. Mud slinging will be of no avail to any one. If Imran Khan has no right to speak in the house then opposition too has no right to speak”, he said this in a statement issued here Tuesday.

He went on to say that Afghan peace process has entered into critical phase. The statement given by Afghan vice president and Afghan national security advisor led to entangle the matter rather than disentangling the matter. Mudslinging will do no good to any stake holder. If we shirk from our lapses then no solution will be found.

He urged that the Afghan leadership should sit together and address the problems facing them.

Conflict is very visible in India today, he said adding India has been divided into secular and Hindutva mindset at present. The minorities are under pressure therein. They are feeling themselves insecure therein. A large majority in India has rejected Modi government strategy. India should work for peace in the regions rather than acting as spoiler.

Citing to budget for the fiscal year 2021-22, he said opposition should express their views in civilized manner. Opposition members try to provoke the people in the house. All the members have right to speak on the budget in the house. Whatever criticism they have to do they should do. Non listening to government stance is not appropriate. One way traffic will not run. If opposition does not listen to us then we will too not listen to them.
