Stale­mate on Kash­mir is­sue detri­men­tal for peace: Khar

The Pak Banker - - FRONT PAGE -

Pak­istan's For­eign Min­is­ter Hina Rab­bani Khar has scored the fact that "no Pak­istani ruler can ig­nore the core is­sue of Kash­mir". Me­dia re­ports have quoted an in­ter­view of the for­eign min­is­ter, where she termed the stale­mate on Kash­mir di­a­logue as quite detri­men­tal for peace and har­mony in the Sub­con­ti­nent, while also as­sur­ing that Pak­istan was keep­ing strin­gent fo­cus over devel­op­ment(s) of Kash­mir, in­clud­ing the is­sue of af­ter­math ef­fects of hang­ing of pop­u­lar Kash­miri ac­tivist Afzal Guru.

"It is Pak­istan's full en­deavor to ebb any out-of-con­trol sit­u­a­tion", she as­sured, cau­tion­ing In­dia to es­chew any slack­ness over the is­sue, and rather ex­pe­dite a con­ducive re­sult-ori­ented de­bate at ear­li­est. "Sit­u­a­tion is fast chang­ing due to elec­tions, but the is­sue of Kash­mir would never change", she de­lib­er­ated, while also ex­press­ing her deep­est re­grets and con­cerns of in­ci­dents at LoC, which had gushed in feel­ings of an­i­mos­ity once more.
