Avoid linking Kashmir to talks’ resumption: Holbrooke to Pak
Islamabad: US President Barack Obama’s Special Envoy to Pakistan and Afghanistan, Richard Holbrooke, has said that while Washington supports renewed contacts between Pakistan and India and wants the process to continue, Pakistani leaders should not burden the nascent process with insistence on core issues, specifically Kashmir.
Holbrooke said it was encouraging that India had agreed to engage with Pakistan and issues could be brought onto the agenda once the talks progressed.
According to the Dawn, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani also told Holbrooke that Pakistan remained committed to peace in the region and his government was making sincere efforts for resumption of talks with India.
