ISLAMABAD: On Sunday, Foreign Minister of Pakistan Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that his recent statement was wrongly attributed to the Sikh community to deliberately create misunderstanding.
The FM was reacting to Indian Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj, who had said that Qureshi’s statement about Prime Minister Imran Khan delivering a ‘googly’ is disrespectful towards Sikh sentiments.
FM Qureshi said that he immensely respects the sentiments of the Sikh community and his words were taken out of context.
“I spoke of India-Pakistan bilateral relations… Distorting facts or creating contention does not change things,” said Qureshi.
He further said that Pakistan made the historic decision about Kartarpur Corridor upon good will.
