Pakistan has dispelled speculations regarding visit of Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi to Kabul, according to an official spokesperson.

“No visit by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi to Kabul is scheduled. Any speculation in this regard is baseless,” Xinhua news agency quoted Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri as saying on Sunday.

On August 21, the Foreign Minister held telephonic conversations with his counterparts in Russia, Germany, Turkey, Belgium and Netherlands to discuss the latest developments in Afghanistan.
