Maas' visit comes as the Pakistani army reported that two people were killed Tuesday in the disputed Kashmir region in an exchange of gunfire between Pakistani and Indian border forces. He appreciated Prime Minister Khan's responsible handling of the situation, particularly the decision of releasing Indian pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. He also underscored Pakistan's key role towards achieving a peaceful settlement in Afghanistan. He briefed the German delegation over the current regional situation in the aftermath of the Pulwama incident.

Pakistan's relations with the US are set to take a new turn due to Islamabad's behind-the-scenes role in facilitating the US-Taliban peace talks to end the 17-year-old brutal war in Afghanistan, according to foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi.

About the recent tensions with India, Qureshi said Pakistan wanted peace in the region but will not "compromise" on Kashmir. The ongoing peace process in Afghanistan also came under discussion.

"Dialogue is the only way forward".

Pakistan's foreign minister says "progress has been made" at ongoing peace talks in Qatar between the Taliban and the United States that have stretched over two weeks.

The minister suggested negotiations to resolve the conflict including resolution of the Kashmir dispute.

Germany is part of the NATO Resolute Support mission to train Afghan security forces and has a force of about 1,200 soldiers stationed there. In response to a question, he said that the German government acknowledged Pakistan's efforts towards deescalation.
