MULTAN (APP) - Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said on Sunday that President Asif Ali Zardari would visit Afghanistan in the first week of January, 2009, hoping it will bring about a pleasant change in bilateral relationship between the two countries. President Zardari was scheduled to visit the neighbouring country Friday last and all arrangements were finalised, however, it had to be postponed due to bad weather conditions, the foreign minister said while talking to media persons at the local airport. He said that as part of the preliminary proceedings for President's last Friday visit to Afghanistan, he had met with his counterpart in Afghanistan, Foreign Minister Dr Rangin Dadfar Spanta, and bilateral negotiations proceeded ahead positively and in a cordial manner. However, a new date has been decided and the President will visit Afghanistan next month and we hope it will give us a breakthrough in improving ties with the neighbouring country and it would be a pleasant change after relationships suffered some tensions in past, Shah Mehmood added. Qureshi termed as baseless a news report that the party wanted the Prime Minister to resign saying it was fabricated news and would die its own death. To a question, he avoided comments on investigations being conducted in Pakistan with regard to Mumbai attacks saying he cannot comment before completion of the investigation process. Pakistan has initiated its own investigation process for we are sincere and honest in our effort to unveil facts, he said, adding that it is our responsibility to absolve Pakistan of false charges. He said that Pakistan was waiting for the leads and information from India to get to the bottom of the matter. To a question, he said that the process was not meant to make somebody happy. We are doing it because it was in the best interest of Pakistan. The foreign minister said that we are moving forward while keeping in view the supreme national interests. He said that Pakistan is a part of international order, adding that it also has to pay attention to what others say. We are making efforts in a convincing manner to express our point of view before the world. Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that Pakistan was not isolated and has many friends, adding that our stance was well appreciated by European ambassadors. In December 2008 Foreign Ministers' meeting in Brussels, the EU ministers issued statements lauding Pakistan's stance. He said that Pakistan's viewpoint was also appreciated at the Foreign Ministers' meeting in Paris that was attended by ministers from Central Asian States, India, Afghanistan, China and EU Ministers. To another question on hot statements from India, the FM said that it is easy to be emotional and issue fiery statements but it is not the time to act this way and everybody needs to act reasonably. He said that the world knows about the interactions between Pakistan and India during the last 60 years during which relationships witnessed ups and downs. Qureshi did not comment on Indian press reports that there was more to Hemant Karkare's killing during Mumbai attacks than what was being projected saying that the question should be asked from those relating to the matter. About press reports suggesting that Mumbai attack suspect was caught by Indian authorities from Nepal two years ago, he said, Pakistan is a responsible country and added he cannot comment on speculative reports. He said that wise people in India believe that the two nations should not suffer the agony of war because of few unwise elements. War cannot offer any solution and future of the two nations cannot be put at stake due to unwise elements, he added. He made it clear that Pakistani government and armed forces were fully alive to the situation and have the capability and the right to defend the country and counter aggression, if war was imposed. Our stance remains the same from day one that Pakistan was ready to cooperate in Mumbai attacks investigation and we will extend all possible cooperation, he said. He, however, added that Pakistan would take action against the suspects in accordance with its own law, if any one was found involved. He lauded positive role played by Pakistani media after Mumbai attacks. When asked, he said that trade with India is continuing. Monitoring Desk adds: Pakistan has forwarded to India a proposal of four nations commission to probe Mumbai blasts. Sources say that Pakistan has given proposal on state level to India of forming a commission of experts from Pakistan, India, UK and USA to probe Mumbai blasts. The UK Premier has already presented this proposal during his recent Pakistan tour.
