Srinagar: India and Pakistan should carry forward the positive change in their relations and shed confrontationist and military approach to settle issues between them, says a senior politician of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

"There has been a positive change in the relations between India and Pakistan and efforts should be made to carry it forward. The focus should be on reconciliation and resolution of issues including Kashmir," so-called former Prime Minister of PoK Sultan Mehmood Chaudhury said here.

Chaudhury, the first senior politician from the PoK to visit Jammu and Kashmir in last six decades, said confrontationist attitude or a military approach has failed to resolve Kashmir issue in the past 64 years and will not yield any results in future as well.

Appreciating Indian response to recent terror incidents, as "mature", he, however, said the statements about existence of training camps and militants in PoK was just a diversionary tactic.

"India and Pakistan have to engage in a dialogue for resolving Kashmir issue but the leadership from both sides of Line of Control has to be involved for finding a lasting solution," Chaudhury, who is here to attend a wedding ceremony, said.
