Qureshi added that several steps have been taken by the current government to boost Pakistan's economy and steps have been taken to create investment opportunities in the country. "The horrific, tragic incident of the Army Public School in Peshawar was a watershed [moment] in our thinking".

Maas lauded Pakistan's role in the ongoing Afghan peace process.

Secretary Pompeo expressed his understanding of India's concerns regarding cross-border terrorism, it said. "However, India is escalating tensions for political reasons", Qureshi said. "Pakistan has never shied of dialogue", he remarked. He also appreciated Pakistan's "quick release" of Indian pilot Abhinandan and said the move had helped deescalate tensions between the two countries.

The Foreign Minister also informed Mr. Bolton that Pakistan's High Commissioner to India had returned to Delhi after consultations.

The building was in the Ita-faji area of Lagos island, the original heart of the lagoon city before it expanded onto the mainland. Many people including school children are believed to be trapped inside a building that collapsed on Wednesday.

Qureshi said that being an important stakeholder in Afghan peace process, Pakistan wanted a "responsible" withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.

However, the fighter jets were not shot down because they stayed within Pakistani-controlled territory, according to senior officials.

"Pakistan is a peace loving nation but if subjected to aggression by adversary, we would respond with full force", the PAF statement quoted Anwar as saying.
