ISLAMABAD (APP) - Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar on Thursday stressed that Pakistan would always champion the Jammu and Kashmir cause and its resolution as per the United Nations resolutions and the wishes of the Kashmiri people.

The PM said it while speaking at the ongoing Envoys’ Conference held at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Pakistan’s envoys from important capitals are participating in the conference and are deliberating on various aspects of Pakistan’s foreign policy.

Welcoming the prime minister, Foreign Minister Jalil Abbas Jilani outlined the framework of discussions at the Envoys’ Conference and its importance as a deliberative forum on diplomatic challenges and opportunities for Pakistan given global and regional developments.

He underscored the need for strengthening the anchoring role of the Foreign Office in foreign policy formulation and implementation.

He said that foreign policy should be guided by a vision of Pakistan as a progressive, economically ascendant state that prioritises the socioeconomic well-being of its people.

It should also continue to aim for peace and mutually beneficial relations across the globe, he added. Pakistan would continue to stand for international law and the United Nations Charter, mainstreaming economic diplomacy and supporting the Palestinian cause, the prime minister said.

He termed the conference timely and relevant against the backdrop of profound transformations taking place in the region and around the globe.

He reaffirmed his trust in Pakistan’s diplomacy and diplomats in their capability to fully deliver despite pressing odds and expressed the hope that the deliberations of the conference would lead to practical suggestions to navigate Pakistan’s foreign policy through present-day challenges.
