Pak security experts declare Sir Creek dispute `technically resolved`
Islamabad: The security experts at a seminar organised at the Institute of Policy Studies said that the decades old Sir Creek dispute between India and Pakistan had been resolved technically and only a political decision is needed to be announced.
Head of the department of International Relations at the National Defense University, Dr Muhammad Khan noted that the longstanding dispute of Sir Creek between Pakistan and India was no more a dispute and almost everything was settled at technical level.
Khan said that it is merely the political will which is required to strike a deal, Daily Times reports.
Former deputy chief of Naval Staff (Operations) , Vice Admiral (retd) Iftikhar Rao, emphasized that Pakistan needed to update and further develop its maritime policy of 2002 and take into account the recent trends and developments.
He also stressed the need for meaningful diplomatic efforts to counter the hegemonic designs of India to dominate the Indian Ocean, which it strategically considers ` India`s ocean`, the report added.
