Pakistan’s foreign policy is based on promoting unity and cooperation in the Muslim Ummah, which is one of its main goals “When Pakistan is chair of the 48th OIC meeting, he said that his main goal will be making sure that the Muslim countries work better together.
As Qureshi said: “The Muslim world has to deal with wars and occupation in the Middle East, as well as people who don’t have a say in their own lives.”
“It’s been a long time since the Muslims of Palestine and the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) have been freed from oppression. For the last seven decades, they have worked hard to get their right to self-determination, which is something they can’t give up “The foreign minister said that.

He said that Muslims are becoming more angry because of how often other countries intervene in Muslim countries. “Syria, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Myanmar, and Somalia are home to more than two-thirds of all refugees in the world.”
Qureshi said that Muslim countries are taking in the most refugees right now.
“While we must work to keep the Muslim world from being harmed by outsiders, only we can solve internal problems and fissures that we have to deal with ourselves. The key to ending these conflicts and disagreements is for all of the Islamic countries to work together “he said he thought about it.
The minister said that to fight ideologies of hate like Islamophobia and right-wing racism, people need to be strong and work together. “Muslims around the world have been hurt by a lot of incidents where the Holy Quran has been desecrated and caricatures have been reprinted. They also cause a lot of pain in the Islamic world.”
