Pak to invite India for dialogue on Kashmir
Islamabad: Pakistan plans to invite India for a dialogue on Kashmir issue, Prime Minister’s Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said on Friday, days after India insisted that it would discuss only PoK with Pakistan.
“Our Foreign Secretary would formally be writing to his counterpart in this regard,” Aziz said as he briefed the media about the Pakistan s Envoys Conference held on August 1-3 to deliberate on major foreign policy challenges of Pakistan and make recommendations.
He said the conference spent considerable time on the “grim situation” in Kashmir.
The conference emphasised that Pakistan should continue to extend full diplomatic, political and moral support to the Kashmiris movement for self-determination.
He said that the conference discussed a number of diplomatic initiatives being taken and it was decided that Pakistan should invite India for a dialogue on Kashmir issue.
“As for India, the Envoys Conference noted that India s policy of not engaging in a comprehensive dialogue with Pakistan was not conducive for peace in South Asia,” said Aziz.
