ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Foreign Minister (FM) Shah Mehmood Qureshi has expressed that Pakistan wanted peaceful resolutions of tensions between Iran and US on Wednesday. In a video statement, FM Qureshi said that Pakistan has decided to advance diplomatic relations with other regional countries for the peaceful resolution of tensions between Iran and the US. The minister also said Prime Minister Imran Khan has directed him to visit Iran, Saudi Arabia and the US to pursue our desire for peace and to settle matters. Shah Mehmood Qureshi said Pakistan will play whatever role it can do to protect the region from war. Earlier today, PM Khan directed to FM Qureshi to visit Iran, Saudi Arabia and US to convey peace message. In his tweet, PM Khan informed that he has instructed FM Qureshi to visit Iran, Saudi Arabia and the US and meet with respective foreign ministers, and the US secretary of state. The prime minister said that he has asked Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa to contact relevant military leaders to convey a clear message. “I have asked FM Qureshi to visit Iran, KSA & USA to meet with respective foreign ministers, Secretary of State; & COAS Gen Bajwa to contact relevant military leaders to convey a clear message: Pakistan is ready to play it’s role for peace but it can never again be part of any war,” Imran Khan tweeted. On Wednesday morning, Iran had launched a missile attack on US-led forces in Iraq in retaliation for the US drone strike on an Iranian commander whose killing has raised fears of a wider war in the Middle East. Tehran fired more than a dozen ballistic missiles from Iranian territory against at least two Iraqi facilities hosting US-led coalition personnel at about 1:30 a.m. local time, the US military said on Tuesday.
