Pak Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi Loses Cool When Asked To Name 58 Nations Backing Them On J&K

Islamabad: 

Highlights

  1. Imran Khan had claimed 58 countries supported Pak's stand on J&K
  2. Shah Mahmood Qureshi posted a tweet backing Mr Khan's comment
  3. Mr Qureshi failed to name countries during a TV show

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi lost his cool on being asked to name the 58 countries that Prime Minister Imran Khan commended for backing Islamabad on its stance on the Kashmir issue at the United Nations Human Rights Commission.

During a talk show on Pakistan TV channel Express News, Mr Qureshi was asked the question as he had repeatedly endorsed Mr Khan's statement that 58 countries had supported Islamabad on the Kashmir issue, reported Sputnik news agency.

"On whose agenda are you working?" Mr Qureshi snapped at talk show host Javed Chaudhry. "Are you going to tell me or decide which countries have or have not supported Pakistan at the UN?... You may write whatever you want!"

On being again pressed for endorsing Imran Khan's comment on his own Twitter handle, Mr Qureshi said, “No! No! Show me the tweet I have written, not what Prime Minister Khan has written. You have said my tweet... show that to me. I want my tweet."

Even after the minister was shown the tweet, Mr Qureshi said he found nothing wrong in the tweet. "I stand by what I have said. What is so surprising in this....whose agenda are you following?”
