ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that Pakistan and the United States have different stance on several matters.

Addressing a press conference after the talks with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday, he said the US had not made demand for ‘Do More’. “We got the impression that the US policy has been reviewed. We presented the Pakistani stance with self-respect, tolerance and responsibility,” he said.

The foreign minister said that he would make his first visit to Afghanistan. “The talks with the US were held in positive and congenial environment. Afghanistan will also benefit if Pakistan makes progress. Our future is linked to Afghanistan. We want to live in peace,” he maintained.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said: “Pompeo hinted that there is no military solution to the Afghanistan issue. The US also wants a political solution to the Afghanistan issue.”
