He maintained that China-Afghanistan-Pakistan Trilateral Foreign Minister’s Dialogue was playing an important role in promoting peace and stability.
Qureshi congratulated Chinese leadership and its people for successfully landing its spacecraft on Mars and acknowledged that it was a historic milestone for China.
Sharing his apprehensions about the rapidly deteriorating situation, he briefed his Sudanese counterpart on Pakistan’s consistent and steadfast support to Palestine.
