Specially, the FM Qureshi called Iran’s inclusion in the CPEC as a jolt for India.
He said even the (Indian) opposition is criticizing the BJP-led Indian government.
Furthermore, he cited that several Indian troops lost lives and injured in a clash with China.
The FM also pointed to tension between India and Nepal and India-Bangladesh relationship warmth has also reduced.
He recalled India wanted to isolate Pakistan, but it itself left isolated.
Meanwhile, Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Pakistan provided India consular access to its spy Kulbhushan Jadhav Thursday, but the Indian diplomats avoided talking to him.
The Foreign Minister said India’s ill intentions have been exposed as it did not want access to its spy.
Qureshi said that Pakistan gave second consular access to Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav on Thursday but both the officials of Indian High Commission left the meeting, even ignoring his calls.
Pakistan gave the consular access to the Indian spy under agreed terms but the Indian officials did not listen or speak to him.
The minister said this in a statement on Thursday.
