NC pitches for uninterrupted Indo-Pak dialogue
NISAR AHMED THOKAR
Islamabad, Nov 6: Stressing the need for uninterrupted and unhindered parleys between India and Pakistan, National Conference (NC) leader Dr Mehboob Beg has said that dialogue is the only way forward to address problems confronted by the two countries.
“Dialogue process has to be taken to the logical conclusion and Kashmiris would be the main beneficiaries of Indo-Pak dialogue”, Dr Beg said while addressing the concluding session of the SAARC parliamentarians conference here on Tuesday. The NC leader, who is part of the Indian delegation, told the delegates that being largest nations of the association (SAARC), India and Pakistan would have to play key role to sort-out all issues that have impaired the socio-economic development of the region.
“The onus to sort out issues lies on these two nuclear nations”, he said adding that the elimination of corruption from the respective societies was yet another big challenge for the SAARC nations.
“It is good to say, we constitute 1/5th of the world population but a good majority of people in South Asia face serious shortage of food”, he said adding that SAARC countries would have to accelerate the process of co-operation whereby poor and needy people can benefit.
Later talking to Greater Kashmir over phone Dr Beg said that during last two days he had meaningful discussions with various political leaders of Pakistan including the foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar.
Appreciating the improving relationship between the two countries, the NC leader expressed optimism that an uninterrupted dialogue process between India and Pakistan would pave way for resolution of all outstanding issues.
