Democracy, 18th Amendment Under No threat: Qureshi

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi reacting on Bilawal’s apprehension said that there was no threat to democracy, country and rights of the provinces.

PPP chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Friday had said that the 18th Amendment was in danger as it was being attacked from different sides, but all opposition parties were firm in their resolve to foil these attacks.

He reiterated his concerns during a visit to the Karachi Press Club with party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah.

He said the Government has no intention to make any change in the 18th constitutional amendment.

The opposition is trying to seek its survival in politics by creating misunderstandings about the amendment.

He also mentioned that due to the effective foreign policy, the world is respecting Pakistan and wants to engage it in the resolution of international issues.

He said this while talking to media persons in Multan on Saturday. The Foreign Minister said he is leaving for London to participate in an international conference.

He said during the conference, he will discuss the report published by All Parties Parliamentary Group of House of Commons on Kashmir in last October.

Foreign Minister said the members of the European Union and representatives of Kashmir are also participating in this conference.

He said, General Elections in India are their internal matter and Pakistan has no intention to interfere in the internal affairs of any Country.

Shah Mehmood Qureshi said Indian Government should not worry about the contact between Pakistan Foreign Ministry and Mirwaiz Umar Farooq.
