Islamabad: Pakistan has strong relationships with almost all countries in the world. Owing to its geography and history, Pakistan plays an important part regarding the ongoing situations in the region.
The Foreign Office Spokesperson said during a media briefing that,
“Based on these considerations, it is very important for Pakistan to contribute toward the goal of ensuring peace and security in the region. We believe that there is an indication (from President Trump’s statement) that peace must be given a chance and de-escalation of tensions should take place.”

When it was about Pakistan and India, Pakistan was promoting peace and made all the efforts to bring prosperity to the region. Pakistan always welcomes and appreciate ‘de-escalation’.
The Foreign Office Spokesperson further said that “On sanctions against Iran indicated by the president of United States in his speech, I would state that we are awaiting further details on that as it was mentioned in the course of his speech. We will update you on our position, as and when the situation develops.”
