The Pakistan Foreign Office has summoned the French ambassador, Marc Baréty, over recent remarks made by French President Emanuel Macron, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Monday.

In a statement carried by Radio Pakistan, Qureshi said Macron's irresponsible statement had added "fuel to the fire". "Nobody has the right to hurt the sentiments of millions of Muslims under the guise of freedom of expression," he said.

The foreign minister also urged the United Nations to take notice and called for action against the hate-based narrative against Islam, the report added.
