SIALKOT (APP) – Minister for Foreign Affairs Khawaja Muhammad Asif has said that Pakistan has ever wanted to have peaceful relations with its neighbours, but they are not giving positive response to its peace initiatives.
He was addressing party workers’ convention at Mianapura here late Friday evening. He said that Pakistan would continue its role for establishing peace in world and weeding out terrorism, militancy, insurgency and extremism from Pakistan by securing its eastern and western borders.
Khawaja Asif said that there was no doubt that the defence of Pakistan was in very strong hands, as the government had made national defence hard to beat. No one could dare to see Pakistan with an evil eye, he added.
He said that the armed forces of Pakistan had full capabilities to defend every inch of the motherland, adding that the nation stands united against terrorism and was ready to sacrifice their lives for weeding out terrorism.
The foreign minister said that Nawaz Sharif was still ruling the hearts of masses, adding that people still consider Nawaz Sharif as a great leader of the country, who put the country on the road to development, prosperity and economical stability.
Khawaja Asif strongly criticised political opponent Asif Ali Zardari for using objectionable language against Nawaz Sharif and the top leadership of the PML-N.
He said that the PML-N was the biggest political party in the country, which would again come into power with the power of vote.
He said that the PML-N was ensuring the sanctity of vote and respect of voters and their mandate, adding that only the ‘thumb impression’ on the ballot papers could change the destiny of the nation, and not the finger of any umpire.
Khawaja Muhammad Asif said that politically mature people have rejected the ongoing negative politics and confrontation by political jugglers in the country.
He said that the PML-N government was fulfilling all its political promises, saying that only the PML-N had the capability to serve the nation and the country in a better way.
He said that this time people would vote the PML-N on the basis of its performance in every sector during the general elections. He said that only the PML-N government had delivered by honouring all its commitments and political promises, especially ending the inherited energy crisis and load-shedding of electricity in the country.
