Pakistan Calls US, Iran To Show Restraint

Pakistan has asked the United States and Iran to show restraint and resolve their issues through dialogue.

At his weekly news briefing in Islamabad, Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal said the recent developments in the Persian Gulf are disturbing.

He said the US decision to deploy aircraft carrier and bombers have added tension to the existing precarious security situation in the Middle East.

The spokesperson warned that any miscalculated move can transmute into a large scale conflict.

Talking further he said that victims of Samjhota Express terrorist attack are still awaiting justice as the criminals who carried that heinous act out have been set free by the Indian court which is a huge disappointment for the bereaved families.

Commenting on the situation in Occupied Kashmir, the spokesman added that brutalities being carried out there are beyond cruelty.

He said Pakistan has condemned the rape of a minor in Indian held Kashmir which was an act of barbarianism.

Replying to a question Dr Faisal said that Pakistan has a clear policy on accepting the deportees from countries.

He said fifty Pakistanis were deported from the United States yesterday through a chartered flight.

He also told the media that PM Imran Khan will be attending the up coming Shanghai Cooperation Organization meeting of head of states to be held in Bishkek during June.

He said Foreign Minister will attend a meeting ahead of it in Bishkek during May.
