K-resolution only through talks: Jaswant
Islamabad, Apr 15: The former Union Minister for External Affairs Jaswant Singh has said that Kashmir issue could be resolved only through negotiations between India and Pakistan.
In a brief interactive session with the media and audience of the ceremony of launching of his book ‘Jinnah: India-Partition-Independence’ here at Islamabad Club.
Referring to the criticism by his own party, BJP for writing the controversial book he said, “The 1947 partition is a fact and India cannot reverse it. I had questioned the partition just to prevent future traumatic incidents between the two countries”, he said.
Singh said that he would continue with his efforts to avert further traumatic situations in the subcontinent.’
Pertinently, the BJP had expelled Jaswant Singh from the primary membership of the party in August last year after the release of his book praising Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, in his book.
“Views expressed by Jaswant Singh in his book ‘Jinnah -- India, Partition, Independence’ does not represent views of the party. In fact, the party completely dissociates itself from the contents of the book,” the then party chief Rajnath Singh had said.
