Lahore, Mar. 29 (ANI): Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has defended sitting close and whispering to US Secretary of States Hillary Clinton during the recently concluded Pak-US talks by saying that he had to sit in such posture to "achieve progress on certain issues."
Speaking to reporters at the Allama Iqbal International Airport on Lahore, Qureshi said: "To achieve progress on certain issues, one has to sit in such a posture."
He added that the US has signalled about providing a multi-layer security system to Pakistan, for which he would be going to America next month.
Qureshi further informed the media that Clinton would also visit Pakistan to give the final shape to the outcome of Pak-US talks.
"It's not a mere paper work and the two sides intend to erect a complete structure to convert our current relations into partnership," he said. (ANI)
