Islamabad: Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has said that the mistrust between India and Pakistan must be reduced in order to resolve the Kashmir issue, and to carry forward the peace process.
Khar asked India not to remain hostage to its domestic politics, and added that both neighbours needed to make their dialogue process uninterruptible, reports The Dawn.
She expressed "deep disappointment" over the Indian leadership`s handling of the situation after incidents along the Line of Control in January, which led to renewed tensions between the two countries.
Lack of progress on the core issues of Kashmir, Siachen, Sir Creek and water led to disenchantment among the masses, she added.
Khar said the government pursued an independent foreign policy that was not hostile to any country or region. She particularly mentioned the importance the Pakistan Peoples Party government attached to neighbours - China, India, Afghanistan and Iran.
