Qureshi discusses Russia-Ukraine conflict with Chinese FM


Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Tuesday held telephonic conversation with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi and discussed situation in Afghanistan, Ukraine crisis and other matters of mutual interest.

The two foreign ministers discussed bilateral ties and exchanged views on the regional and global situation, the foreign office said in a statement.

“State Councillor Wang Yi conveyed his condolences on the loss of precious lives in the cowardly terrorist attack in Peshawar and sympathies with the families of the victims,” it added.

FM Qureshi underlined that the terrorist act was an attack on the peace-loving people of Pakistan who had rendered tremendous sacrifices to eliminate the scourge of terrorism from Pakistan.

He shared the resolve of the government to continue its unrelenting counter-terrorism efforts and bringing the perpetrators to justice.

Recalling the successful visit of the Prime Minister Imran Khan to China in which various important decisions were taken to advance bilateral practical cooperation, Foreign Minister Qureshi stressed the importance of close coordination between the two sides for early realisation of agreed ventures and projects.

He expressed satisfaction on the high-quality development of CPEC and accelerating industrial relocation and investments to Pakistan.
