ISLAMABAD -- Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi Wednesday (March 6) thanked the United States and other countries for their role in de-escalating tensions between Pakistan and India, Dawn reported.
"There appears to be a de-escalation in tensions [with India], which is a positive development," Qureshi said in Islamabad.
