The foreign minister emphasized the significance of a responsible exit by emphasizing the importance of a decrease in conflict, a lasting truce, and seizing this unprecedented opportunity to achieve an equitable, broad-based, and substantive diplomatic resolution.
Pakistan’s enormous sacrifices in the fight against extremism, as well as strides achieved in tightening anti-terrorism funding and anti-money laundering regimes, were also highlighted by the foreign minister. He reaffirmed his commitment to continue working on this problem.
Foreign Minister Qureshi and Secretary Blinken decided to keep in contact and work closely to advance the mutual and regional interests of the two countries.
