Islamabad [Pakistan], Feb 25 (ANI): Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Monday spoke to his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi over the phone on the "evolving regional situation" after the Pulwama terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir on February 14.
During the telephonic conversation, Qureshi "underscored Pakistan’s desire for peace and stability in the region and resolution of all issues through negotiations and dialogue with India," according to a statement by Pakistan's Foreign Office.
Wang Yi, on his part, said that the unfolding situation was "serious" with "implications for peace and security in the entire region," the statement added.
In one of the worst assaults on security forces in Kashmir, about 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives in a suicide bomb attack in Awantipora area of Pulwama district on February 14.
Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), a Pakistan-based and backed terror outfit had claimed responsibility for the ghastly attack.
In response, India revoked the 'Most Favoured Nation' status accorded to Pakistan and asserted that a "befitting reply" will be given. (ANI)
