"The missions are also keeping close liaison with the Pakistani and Kashmiri diaspora,” Aziz said.

About countering India's initiatives to demoralise and isolate Pakistan particularly among neighbours, the SAARC members and members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), he said that all out efforts were being made to counter India’s nefarious motives.

"The efforts to cultivate Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, Maldives, Myanmar, Iran and the Central Asian Republics plus Russia are being redoubled, for which parliamentarians and parliamentary committees are playing important roles," he added.

Aziz said that Pakistan was making all efforts to engage the international community including regional countries, adding they would continue to rely on support of the parliament and the parliamentarians.

He said that Pakistan was supporting all initiatives taken for peace and stability in the region, adding under the guidance of the prime minister, the government had pursued a policy of a “peaceful neighbourhood” since June 2013.
