Hope SAARC reduces India-Pakistan tensions: Minister

Pakistan hopes that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif`s participation in the Saarc Summit in Nepal will help reduce India-Pakistan tensions, Defence Minister Khawaja Asif said Tuesday.

Asif said Pakistan wanted good relations with India but Islamabad`s desire should not be seen as a weakness, reports Xinhua. 

He said Sharif had expressed his resolve to improve relations with India.

The minister insisted that Pakistan would have to play a role to restore peace in Afghanistan.

He also blamed the US for much of the region`s problems, and said regional countries should find solutions to their problems without the involvement of others.
