After Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi hinted that he may resume dialogue with Pakistan by sending his new Indian Foreign Secretary to Pakistan soon, a senior government official said on Sunday that all issues, including India’s interference in Pakistan and the Kashmir dispute, will be discussed, Radio Pakistan reported.

Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs and National Security Sartaj Aziz in a television interview on Sunday stressed the need for meaningful and serious dialogue between Pakistan and India to resolve all outstanding issues.

He added that the United States and other countries know that India had unilaterally called off the foreign secretary level talks in August last year and that the world community had urged both sides to move forward on the dialogue process.

Aziz said that while progress has been made on issues such as Sir Creek and Siachen, Pakistan will raise India’s interference inside Pakistan and the Kashmir dispute in the upcoming talks in which all issues are expected to be discussed.

    India is hatching conspiracies from across the border and inciting violence, in fata kpk and Baluchistan, Pakistan should took serious notice of it and raise the issue at each and every possible forumRecommend

    Why doesnt the Pakistani military stop pushing elected governments around to ensure unnecessary and futile political confrontations with India? The answer of course is that Pakistani generals think that peace in the region will reduce their importance in the country.Recommend

    Don’t live in false delusion,Indian Foreign Secretary is on a SAARC “Regional” tour and will be in pakistan as well but he is not on a “Bilateral” visit to pakistan and everyone knows bilateral issues are not discussed in regional meets or tours and if it was indeed raised then it will be taken casually/informally and will be forgotten but not formally and when no formal discussion no chance of moving forward.So Srataz Aziz claim that i will raise or nawaz will raise India’s interference in Pakistan, Kashmir will be heard,thrown out of ear, rejected and forgotten outright since the platform was not part of official “Bilateral” itinerary because Bilateral meeting is not yet agreed by GOI. .Recommend

    What Pakistan needs is not a psychiatrist. It is a good national dialysis machine, that can rid the nation of toxin called extremism/Jihad.

    Pakistan is welcome to have its views on Kashmir & India. But, it isn’t welcome to resort to toxic strategies like Jihad.Recommend

    The reasons for Indian foreign secretary is purely to satisfy Americans. There is no call from Indian People ( Mumbai bombing and LOC violation and constant interference in Kashmjr) for change of status quo.
    There is a need for a news face , Sartaz Aziz has made too many statements i.e . Drawn lines in the sand . India will never give an inch of it’s territory from Kashmir. It is stunning that pakistan parted so quickly from the territory ( East Bengal) which was the real soul ,heart and reason for its being . If Kadhmir is for Kadhmiris , let them fight . Stay out if you interfere then India has every right to support Balauchistan to its freedom fighters. Remember the prince of Kalat was forced by the Pakistani army to surrender. Recommend

    I don’t know why any settlement talks about Kashmir are only seen through the prism of Indo-Pak relations. Why is it that in the whole World its only Pakistan that has to care about the sufferings of the Kashmiris and when it does so its seen as Pakistan’s attempt at destabilizing India . Why India does not listen to her own citizens like Arundhati Roy and give Kashmiris equal rights as citizens.If it would stop its atrocities on Kashmiris , Pakistan or no state on Earth would be left with any rationale for their intervention on the Kashmir issue. If the Indian Govt. treats its minorities specially the Muslims justly as President Obama also hinted in his speech recently in India , no power on Earth would be able to destabilize India as India alleges.Its high time both India and Pakistan realize their future stability lies in co-existing as two sovereign independent states Recommend

    @Sheila Zulfiqar Ahmed:

    Yeah, that’s right. You don’t know anything and you don’t know what you’re talking about.

    “Why is it that in the whole World its only Pakistan that has to care about the sufferings of the Kashmiris and when it does so its seen as Pakistan’s attempt at destabilizing India .”

    Only an idiot can believe that a country that doesn’t care about its 180 million failures cares about another people. Pakistan only cares about Kashmir land and not Kashmiris.

    “Why India does not listen to her own citizens like Arundhati Roy and give Kashmiris equal rights as citizens.”

    Idiocy continues. Arundhati Roy is not an expert on Kashmir. She’s one person and that’s 1.2 billion less than the rest of us.

    And again with the idiocy. If anything Kashmiris have more rights than the rest of India. And this should end immediately.

    “If it would stop its atrocities on Kashmiris , Pakistan or no state on Earth would be left with any rationale for their intervention on the Kashmir issue.”

    Irrationality is in the DNA on Pakistanis. atrocities on Kashmiris have happened from Indian army. But this was a direct result of Pak sponsored terrorism. If Pak stops terrorism and stops polarising the people of Kashmir on the name of vicious religion, there will be no atrocites. In fact the army will be called back.

    “If the Indian Govt. treats its minorities specially the Muslims justly as President Obama also hinted in his speech recently in India , no power on Earth would be able to destabilize India as India alleges.”

    Obama never said anything about Muslims. He said minorities. Minorities are a target in every country, including America. And a Pakistani talking about Indian Muslims must understand that his own 180 million Muslims are utter failures.

    “Its high time both India and Pakistan realize their future stability lies in co-existing as two sovereign independent states ”

    Actually NO. The future is bright for the entire world only if Pakistan ceases to exist and Pakistan is broken up into smaller states, like in 1971.Recommend

    He is visiting all SAARC countries and simply coming to introduce himself and break the ice. you say what-ever you want but nothing is going to happen immediately…. His visit is not to discuss Kashmir or what-ever…. His main focus is to enforce common SAARC agenda.

    For those who claim this is happening because of a phone call from US? No… It is happening because someone was fired from her job and we have a new guy in town. Recommend

    I protest at your policy of not publishing my reply to the stupid comments by , apparently, an Indian to my initial remarks. It shows your Pakistan bias . Moreover , you are publishing comments mostly which are either anti India or anti Pakistan but anyone who tries to bring down differences between India and Pakistan faces black out…Why? I can’t understand !!Recommend
