Amid his ongoing tour in UAE, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has reiterated his concerns that India is allegedly planning another surgical strike against Pakistan. Qureshi also met his UAE counterpart Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al Nahyan on Thursday. Qureshi at a press conference said: "I have learned through our intelligence sources, they have picked up this information that India is planning a surgical strike against Pakistan. This is a serious development, and I also have knowledge that they have tried to seek approval from important players who they consider to be their partners." Earlier this month, Indian Army chief General MM Naravane had travelled to Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Amid the rising cases of COVID-19, The Emirates has reportedly halted the issuance of new visas to Pakistani citizens, citing security concerns which is a massive setback for Pakistan's struggling economy since foreign remittances from expats in the UAE are life-savers for Islamabad. However, the visa issue is yet to be resolved.
