ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi who was representing chairman Imran Khan at the meeting said that his party had several differences with the government yet he chose to attend the meeting.

“We are with the government on the Kashmir issue. The present government tried very hard to improve relations with India. Unfortunately India did not respond with the same vigour.”

He hailed PM’s speech in the UN adding that Pakistan had raised the Kashmir issue in front of leaders from 11 countries.

Speaking to the media after the meeting, Qureshi said a message needs to be sent to the global community that the entire nation would be united behind the armed forces if there is any aggression against Pakistan’s security.

Qureshi said it was decided in the meeting that any attempt by Indian to block Pakistan’s water would be considered aggression. The meeting also reiterated that the issue in Kashmir cannot be tied to Balochistan.

The PTI leader added that the issue of Panama scandal was also raised during the meeting.
