Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Monday asked Armenia to respect sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan.

Addressing a session of Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) contact group in New York, FM Qureshi urged Armenia to pullout its troop from Nagorno-Karabakh.

He said that Pakistan opposed any attempt to change the status of any disputed territory and hoped that Armenia, by complying with the international laws, will play its role to resolve the decades old dispute.

The foreign minister said that at least one million people had been displaced owing to the dispute since 1994.

He said that the conflict was also a serious threat to regional peace like Kashmir dispute.

Earlier in the day, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had said that the unilateral move by the Indian government in occupied Kashmir had put the regional peace and stability at risk.

Talking to the deputy prime minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, FM Qureshi had said that Kashmiris had been facing inhuman curfew and severe torture by the hands of occupation forces in the held valley since August 5.

Shah Mehmood Qureshi meets his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif at United Nations (UN) headquarters here on Monday.

Matters pertaining to peace and security in the region were discussed in the meeting.

Speaking on the occasion, the FM said Prime Minister Imran Khan will soon meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Both Foreign Ministers agreed to continue consultations on changing situation of the region.
