Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi inaugurated a state of the art Media Center in Foreign Office building as per the Vision FO, reported 24NewsHD TV channel Monday.

Shah Mehmood Qureshi said with the passage of time, the institution's interaction with media has enhanced and it is the fact the media is the fourth pillar of the state. He added, “The world is changing and now Foreign office also needs to change.”

“The Foreign Office has always been conservative around the world, but we have to go ahead with caution adapting new requirements,” Qureshi said.

Foreign Minister said, “Now evening programs are conducted on just one tweet. The Foreign Office has established a Strategic Communications Division whose role is to work for international perception and narrative building,” he added.

“Pakistan became successful in defeating terrorism. There is a need to counter the Indian propaganda who had cunningly bulldozed the Kashmiri rights. The Kashmir issue was highlighted after India’s 5 August illegal step in the occupied valley,” Qureshi further said. He said Foreign Office has an important role in highlighting national unity.

In the inaugural ceremony, Foreign Secretary Suhail Mehmood and other officers were also present.

Foreign office in a statement issued also said, Foreign Office says the latest report of Human Rights Watch has exposed Indian atrocities in Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir and discriminatory attitude towards the minorities in India.

“We have still been blamed for terrorism even after laying the lives of 70,000 Pakistanis,” Qureshi said.

Talking to Radio Pakistan, foreign office spokesman Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said the prevailing situation in IIOJ&K is worsening day by day and since August 5 last year Indian forces have been using every brutal tool against the Kashmiris.

He said Amnesty International has closed its offices in India, so it is not right to say that the international community is not taking notice of the Kashmir dispute.

He said today, India is losing in IIOJ&K and its policies in the valley have completely failed.
