Statesman Report
ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Wednesday assured the nation that he was completely healthy but had “voluntarily decided” to self-isolate for five days after his return from China in order to “give a message”.
“I am completely healthy […] but a message needs to be given that we should follow the guidance provided by our experts. I’m not doing this for myself, but for the people surrounding me — my family, my friends. I am playing a responsible role and we should all do the same,” he said in a televised press conference.
Talking about his trip to China alongside President Arif Alvi, the foreign minister said the Chinese leadership had thanked Pakistan for the “emotional support at a difficult time”. – APP
