ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi in a sharp warning asked Saudi Arabia-led Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to stop dilly-dallying on the convening of a meeting of its Council of Foreign Ministers (CFM) on Kashmir.
He urged the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and Muslim ummah to come together on the Kashmir issue, saying Pakistan was always ready to sacrifice for the security and protection of Saudi Arabia and it was time they did the same.
Speaking to a private news channel, Qureshi said Pakistan was not in favour of aggression, but was fully prepared and would retaliate effectively if India indulged in any misadventure.
“If there is any misadventure, we will not have any choice but to retaliate. The world should understand that Pakistan will have to react,” he said.
Responding to a question about India diverting the world’s attention, the foreign minister said, they could not rule out that possibility.
To a question about any back-channel contacts with India on the issues like Siachen and Sir Creek, he replied in the negative, adding, no talks could be held in such an environment.
