Srinagar: India and Pakistan should carry

between them, says a senior politician of Pakistan-occupied
"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

"India and Pakistan have to engage in a dialogue for
resolving Kashmir issue but the leadership from both sides of
