India not exploring oil, gas in Sir Creek: Khar
Islamabad: Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has told the Senate that no oil and gas exploratory activities by India have been reported in the disputed Sir Creek marshland, which is under surveillance by the Pakistan Maritime Security Agency and the Pakistan Navy.
The Daily Times quoted Khar as saying that Pakistan has been making efforts to normalise relations with India but negotiations can only be successful if India shows flexibility in the matter.
She said the issue of Sir Creek, which opens into the Arabian Sea and divides Kutch region of the Indian state of Gujarat from Sindh province of Pakistan, could be resolved easily in comparison with other bilateral issues with India.
Khar further said Pakistan will not let individual incidents make the negotiation process hostage in any case. She said Pakistan is committed to peace with all its neighbours, including India.
