ISLAMABAD: Spokesperson of the Foreign Office, Mumtaz Zahra Baloch, while reacting to the handshake of Indian counterpart Jaishankar with Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto, said that the handshake of the Indian counterpart with the Foreign Minister was a normal formality.

A spokesperson of the Foreign Office said in a conversation with journalists that a host welcomed a guest like other foreign ministers. He added that the Indian hosts have not given us any chance to complain so far, everything is fine so far.

Mumtaz Zahra Baloch said that it is premature to say that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif will attend the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in India in July.

It is known that on the occasion of the dinner given by the Indian foreign minister in honor of the Council of Foreign Ministers, the foreign ministers of Pakistan and India shook hands.

According to the sources, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari was the last to arrive at the dinner. When Bilawal Bhutto arrived, Jaishankar stood up from his seat and shook hands with him.

Bilawal Bhutto arrived at the dinner ceremony of the Russian Foreign Minister before Zardari, Bilawal Bhutto, and the Russian Foreign Minister arrived late at the dinner due to mutual meeting.
