"Spoke with Pakistani FM Qureshi to encourage meaningful steps against JeM and other terrorist groups operating from Pakistan", Bolton said.

The Prime Minister apprised the German Foreign Minister on the current regional situation, including India and Afghanistan as well as the steps taken by his government towards de-escalation.

Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Wednesday said India is escalating tensions with Pakistan for the sake of its own domestic politics.

The tweet came while India's Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale began his Washington visit for talks with USA officials.

The Foreign Minister said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had released the captured Indian pilot Abhinandan as a goodwill gesture despite India's belligerent posture.

Welcoming the German Foreign Minister, the Prime Minister said that Pakistan attaches high importance to its relations with Germany, which are characterized by shared democratic values and multifaceted cooperation.

U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton walks to a Fox News interview outside of the White House in Washington, U.S., March 5, 2019.

"They agreed that Pakistan needs to take concerted action to dismantle the terrorist infrastructure and to deny safe haven to all terrorist groups in its territory".

Addressing the Business Leaders Summit in Islamabad, the foreign minister said, "We have a challenging situation on the western front in Afghanistan and we have a situation brewing on the eastern front. They also agreed that those who support or abet terrorism in any form should be held accountable", the statement said.

Trade across the LoC has allegedly been suspended after the Pakistan Air Force violated India's air space by targeting military positions on February 27.

The escalation of tensions between the two nuclear-armed neighbours prompted the major powers to intervene and urged both Pakistan and India to de-escate.

Qureshi also said that three German political foundations, that had "not been able to work in Pakistan" earlier, would now be able to launch operate in the country as both sides had "amicably" resolved the issues due to which the operations of the organisations were being hindered.
