In a written statement, Spokesperson Beluç stated that the implications of associating Zardari’s statements with a threat, who went to Goa, India to attend the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, are not only damaging but also extremely irresponsible.
Baluch denied allegations that Zardari threatened India, which was preparing to hold G20 meetings in Jammu and Kashmir.
Reminding that Minister Zardari emphasized the peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir discussions in line with the United Nations Security Council resolutions during his visit, Baluç called on the media to respect the norms of journalism while reporting sensitive interstate issues.
Visiting Goa on 4-5 May to attend the SCO Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, Zardari made his first visit to India since 2011 at the level of Foreign Minister from Pakistan.
India plans to hold the G20 Tourism Working Group Meeting on May 22-24 in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir.
