Ball in India’s court: Pak
Islamabad, Mar 2: Pakistan today said the ball is in India’s court to revive the composite dialogue process and resolve all outstanding issues, including the Kashmir problem.
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi made these remarks while briefing the Parliamentary committee on Kashmir at the Foreign Office, TV news channels reported.
He told the committee headed by Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman that the Kashmir problem was one of the key issues discussed at the Foreign Secretary-level talks between India and Pakistan last month.
GKNN adds from Islamabad: Federal Minster for Kashmir affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan, Mian Manzoor Ahmad Wattoo, on Tuesday said Pakistan wanted to amicably resolve all outstanding issues, including Kashmir dispute, with India.
He stressed that India should resume the composite dialogue with his country. The minister said that the Pakistan Prime Minister, Yousuf Raza Geelani, could visit India but the time hasn’t come for it yet.
“We want to ensure the participation of the Kashmiri leadership on either side of the line of control in the talks,” he said, addressing a meeting of Kashmir Journalists’ Forum here.
On the occasion, Forum president, Sardar Aabid Khurshid and vice president, Ghulamullah Kiyani, urged the minister to work for putting an end to the alleged human rights violations in Jammu and Kashmir. They urged the minister to intensify the efforts for the resolution of Kashmir issue.
