Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that the UAE or any other country has the right to maintain bilateral relations with countries of their choice, the media reported on Monday.
International relations are above religious sentiments. The UAE and India have a history of relations in connection with investment. However, I will soon have a meeting with the UAE Foreign Minister to inform him about the prevailing situation in 'India held Kashmir'," Qureshi said on Sunday while responding to media queries over UAE conferring its highest civilian award to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"I have contacted foreign ministers of several Islamic countries and getting in touch with remaining ones as well. I am hopeful the Muslim world will support the Kashmiris," Dawn news quoted the Minister as saying.
Qureshi's remarks come a day after Modi was conferred the UAE's highest civilian honour, the "Order of Zayed".
