Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that Pakistan has reached the bottom of the Afghan ambassador daughter’s abduction case and wants cooperation from both the envoy and his daughter in this regard, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Talking to media in Multan on Wednesday, the foreign minister said that the investigation team had examined the footage of Silsila Alikhil’s movement for an extensive 700 hours and reached the bottom of the case. He held that Pakistan wanted that the case would reach its logical conclusion. He said that Police Inspector General presented the whole route taken by the envoy’s daughter. He stated that all four cab drivers who were hired by her on the day of the incident were interrogated. 

Qureshi said that the government of Pakistan needed the cooperation of Afghan Ambassador Najibullah Alikhil and his daughter Silsila Alikhil. He said that we did not want our enemies to use the propaganda of this incident against us. 

“I called the Afghan foreign minister and assured him of full cooperation,” Qureshi maintained.

He stated that despite trading of harsh words, Prime Minister Imran Khan called on Afghan President Ashraf Ghani in Tashkent. 

The foreign minister said that the Dasu bus blast incident in Kohistan that claimed the lives of nine Chinese engineers was deplorable. He was of the view that it was the desire of Pakistan’s enemies to sabotage the CPEC project. He held that Pakistan and China both would defeat the designs of the enemies. 

On Azad Jammu and Kashmir elections, Qureshi said that the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) was ruling in the AJK and the leadership of the PML-N was showing its distrust over the government in the valley.
