Islamabad:Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has come out on Wednesday saying he will leave for China to consult with Beijing on how to proceed further after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government’s move in Kashmir.

The foreign minister added that after the resolution on Kashmir is passed he might “dash off to Beijing.”
He said that Indians themselves were lambasting the Indian government’s decision.
He also refuted opposition claims that the government was caught off guard by the the Narendra Modi-led government’s actions.
He was sharing Islamabad’s policy statement on the floor of the house.
He thanked the opposition for being on the same page with the government on the Kashmir issue.
