ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Foreign Minister (FM) Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Thursday said that Pakistan is a friend of both United States and China, however, it is in America's long term interest to stay connected with Pakistan.

The foreign minister said while expressing his opinion during an exclusive interview with Qatari government-funded Arabic TV channel 'Al-Jazeera'. He also said that the world powers have agreed on a negotiated solution to the Afghan issue.

"The US response to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict had been passive. The Biden administration could have saved many lives with a timely response. Pakistan has played and will continue to play key role for peace in Afghanistan," FM Qureshi maintained.

Shah Mehmood Qureshi further mentioned that for the first time, Israeli government faced pressure from within the country, adding that Israel knew it was losing the media war. “I am happy with the ceasefire, I hope the ceasefire would hold on. The US will have to prove that it believes in human rights," he added.
