Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Wednesday claimed that India has failed to diplomatically isolate Islamabad. 

Briefing Parliament, the minister claimed India on multiple occasions tried to harm Pakistan’s diplomatic ties with other countries, said a media report.

Ties between India and Pakistan nosedived following a spate of terror attacks on Indian military bases by Pakistan-based terror groups since January 2016.

Following the strikes, India announced it will not engage in talks with Pakistan, saying terror and talks cannot go hand-in-hand.

India in September cancelled a proposed meeting between External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and her Pakistan counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi in New York citing the brutal killing of security personnel by Pakistan-based entities.

"India’s failure to isolate Islamabad diplomatically is a win for the country," Qureshi was quoted as saying by The Express Tribune.

He said Pakistan’s position in the diplomatic and global arena would be strengthened and Islamabad would continue to address any challenges that may arise.

Qureshi also maintained that countries willing to invest in Pakistan and benefit from mutual cooperation would not be agreeable to India.

"It is to India’s discontent that nations are willing to establish mutual trade ties with Pakistan," he said.

Qureshi's statement comes ahead of the planned visit by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman on Saturday to expand economic and defence cooperation.
