FM Updates Chilean counterpart about rescue operation to find Pablo Mohr
Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Wednesday held a telephonic conversation with his Chilean counterpart Andrés Allamand and discussed the issue of missing Chilean mountaineer Juan Pablo Mohr.
According to the details, Mohr along with Pakistan’s climber Muhammad Ali Sadpara and John Snorri from Iceland were on the mission to scale K2 in winter but lost contact with the base camp after they started their push for the K2 summit Friday last.
During the call, Shah Mahmood Qureshi expressed his deep concern over the missing mountaineers and apprised his Chilean counterpart of efforts being made by Pakistan to locate them, including a number of search flights by Pakistan Army Aviation helicopters amid challenging weather conditions over a treacherous terrain.
Acknowledging the search and rescue operation, the Chilean FM thanked the government on behalf of the people of Chile and the family of Mr. Mohr for assistance in the search operations.
Meanwhile, all foreign climbers at the K2 base camp have decided to end the K2 Winter Expeditions, considering the harsh weather conditions.
