Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi claims diplomatic victory against India
ISLAMABAD - Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says US President Donald Trump's offer of mediation on Kashmir in the perspective of the critical situation prevailing in the Indian occupied valley is negation of New Delhi's narrative.

He said more than ten people have been killed in riots in New Delhi during the last two days. He said buildings, petrol pumps and business centers have been set alight.
The Foreign Minister urged the world to take notice of this situation.
