akistan’s Foreign Minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Friday claimed that India was planning to launch a surgical strike on the country in order to take away attention from its internal issues.
Qureshi reportedly made the claim at a press conference he addressed in Abu Dhabi while on an official visit to the United Arab Emirates

This is a serious development and I also have knowledge that they have tried to seek approval from important players whom they consider to be their partners,” Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said in Abu Dhabi on Friday.
Qureshi said New Delhi wants to divert attention by hitting Pakistan and unify its divided nation.
“This misadventure is being planned by India to divert attention from serious internal issues that are mounting in India,” he was quoted as saying by Khaleej Times.
Qureshi is currently on a two-day visit to the UAE on December 17 and 18. On Thursday, Qureshi met senior UAE officials and members of the country’s diaspora.
