ISLAMABAD, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi Friday expressed his pleasure over the clarification by the United States that there had been no change in their policy on Kashmir as they still considered it a disputed territory.

 

The foreign minister, in a statement, said that Pakistan immediately presented its stance following a State Department’s tweet.

 

He was referring to a State Department’s tweet on February 10 about resumption of 4G service in which IIOJK was referred as “India’s Jammu and Kashmir” what Pakistan viewed was “inconsistent” with the disputed status of Jammu and Kashmir as recognized by numerous United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions and the international community.

 

However, State Department Spokesperson in his media briefing clarified, “I want to be very clear there has been no change in US policy in the region.”

 

The foreign minister said the discussion was underway and hoped for a better outcome.

 

Referring to Naval Exercise AMAN-21 being hosted by Pakistan Navy and participated by 40 international navies, the foreign minister termed it a great success of Pakistan.

 

The exercises would also provide an opportunity for discussion on blue economy, Qureshi said and also hinted at visiting Karachi on the invitation of Naval chief.
