Munich: Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi who is in Munich to attend a security conference in a video message said he was saddened by India’s “knee-jerk reaction” levelling allegations without sharing any proof or evidence against Pakistan.
He said the world knows Pakistan is not involved in the recent attack in Pulwama.
Pakistan Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua held a meeting with the envoys of the permanent member countries (P-5) of the UN Security Council, namely, US, Russia, China, France and UK — and explained Pakistan’s position.
Sponsoring violence or terrorism is not Pakistan’s foreign policy, she said rejecting the Indian allegations of Islamabad’s involvement in Pulwama attack.
MFN status revoked
India on Saturday hiked the customs duty to 200 per cent on all goods imported from Pakistan, following revocation of the “most-favoured nation” status in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack.
“India has withdrawn MFN status to Pakistan after the Pulwama incident. Upon withdrawal, basic customs duty on all goods exported from Pakistan to India has been raised to 200% with immediate effect,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitely said in a tweet.
