Pak blames India for talks deadlock
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Islamabad, Oct 21: Pakistan on Thursday blamed India's efforts to “underplay” the Kashmir dispute and other "unavoidable issues" for the impasse in the last round of talks between the Foreign Ministers of the two countries in July.
The resolution of the Kashmir issue is imperative for peace and prosperity in South Asia, the Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit said during a weekly news briefing here.
He was responding to a question on Indian Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao's remarks that the parleys in July had run aground due to Pakistan’s "overreach".
"I think it was not Pakistan’s overreach but India's attempt to underplay Jammu and Kashmir and other important and unavoidable issues that caused an impasse in the July meeting," Basit said.
