Govt ready for dialogue with opposition on national issues: FM Qureshi

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister (FM) Shah Mahmood Qureshi has announced that the government is ready for dialogue with the opposition at the forum of parliament on national issues, expect accountability process.

Talking to the media at the Parliament House, he said Prime Minister Imran Khan has made it clear time and again that no NRO will be given to the corrupt elements, reported Radio Pakistan.

He, however, said we are political people and believe in political process and dialogue.

FM Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the PDM leadership is holding a meeting at Jati Umra in Lahore today, but differences among the constituent parties of the alliance have already come forth. He said the PPP’s Central Executive Committee has decided that the party will take part in the upcoming by-elections and the Senate elections and that it will not tender resignations from assemblies. The FM said the PPP has also not decided any date for long march.

The minister said the PDM had decided that their parliamentarians will send their resignations to JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman by December 31 last year, but PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari opposed it, arguing that the resignations should rather be sent to the heads of the parties. This shows lack of confidence within the alliance.

Condemning the tragic incident of the burning of a Hindu saint shrine by a mob, the Foreign Minister said the Chief Justice of Pakistan has taken its notice. He said it is an irresponsible act and an attempt to damage Pakistan’s image at the international level.
