Pakistan FM speaks to US National Security Adviser ahead of Indian official visit

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi spoke to US National Security Adviser Ambassador John Bolton over phone as Indian foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale began a three-day trip to US for strategic and security related discussions.
The Indo-US talks are taking place under a regular high level discussion on security and strategic issues but it is expected that JeM chief Masood Azhar blacklisting and other issues related to recent tense events between India and Pakistan would be high on the agenda.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi shared with Bolton Pakistan’s perspective on the recent regional developments, said Pakistan’s Foreign Office said.
The US top security official recalled his and Secretary Pompeo’s efforts for de-escalation between India and Pakistan despite their commitments related to talks with DPRK in Hanoi.
The FO said Bolton lauded Pakistan measures which had helped lowering the tension and urged continued restraint on both sides.  Both sides emphasised the need for dialogue between Pakistan and India to find peaceful resolution to all outstanding disputes.
