Pak gave ‘blank cheque’ to China for talks with India

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that Pakistan had given a “blank cheque” to China,authorising it to negotiate with India on its behalf to deal with the aftermath of the Mumbai terrorist attacks. Qureshi said he had told Chinese special envoy He Yafei to “go to Delhi and you have a blank cheque from us”. The minister said he had told the envoy that Pakistan would endorse whatever China,all-weather friend of Pakistan,would tell India.

Qureshi on Thursday cautioned NATO that any “activation” on its border with India would affect its involvement in the war on terror,including the anti-militancy drive launched by it in the tribal area to flush out al-Qaeda and Taliban militants.
