MULTAN: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi Saturday said that Pakistan would respond in a befitting manner if the enemy casts an evil eye on Pakistan.
“I categorically tell (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi to think twice before any aggression, as it was the Naya (New) Pakistan and the enthusiasm of people is very high and the country is more safe and secure than in the past,” Qureshi said at a ceremony held under the auspices of All Pakistan Clerks Association (APCA) at Multan Arts Council.
The minister said: “It is my responsibility to sensitise people that conspiracies are being hatched against the homeland.
The whole world acknowledges that there is brave leadership in Pakistan now.” Qureshi said: “Nations have to pay the price when they move forward with dignity and courage. Conspiracies are being hatched to put Pakistan in the grey list. The enemies would try to weaken our economy.”
However, he added that Pak forces were alert to foil aggressive moves of the enemy. The Minister appreciated the unity among people to respond to foreign aggression in an amicable way.
He said that he, along with Prime Minister Imran Khan, visited Chachro in Sindh, located near Indian border, to gave a clear message to the enemy that Pakistan was ready for both options, whether its peace or war.
Qureshi said that March 23 would be observed with national zeal and zest.
He said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government would not disappoint masses.
On this occasion, APCA President Banaras Khan Jadoon, General Secretary Khalid Javeed and hundreds of clerks from different departments were also present.
