Islamabad: Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif on Saturday said that Pakistan is willing to conduct a possible dialogue with India, at a time when the BRICS Summit is underway in India.
Nawaz Sharif, while speaking to some reporters in Baku in Pakistan, said that dialogue between India and Pakistan would be focused on the Kashmir dispute as it happens to be the main issue between the two neighbours.
Nawaz Sharif also said Kashmir was the main cause of unrest in the region and India must show seriousness for resolution of the issue and honour its commitment, under United Nations Security Council Resolutions.
“Kashmir was main cause of unrest in the region and India must show seriousness for resolution of the issue and honour its commitment under United Nations Security Council Resolutions,” Sharif was quoted as saying by Associated Press of Pakistan.
Sharif still denied India’s surgical strikes on Pakistan’s terror launch pads citing it as “baseless allegations”.
Sharif dismissed India’s allegations that Pakistan was behind the attack on an Indian army base camp in Uri, saying India levelled allegations against Pakistan within six hours of the incident.
He said no infiltration took place across the Line of Control (LoC).
Nawaz Sharif alleged that Pakistan offered to hold talk with India several times, but India failed to reciprocate. As per Sharif, if India is willing to resolve the tensions, then India must be ‘serious’ and Pakistan is willing to hold talks with India.
Tensions broke out between India and Pakistan after the militants attack on the Indian Army Camp in Uri on 29th September in which 19 Indian soldiers were martyred followed by India’s surgical strikes across the Line of Control (LoC).
