Indian High Commissioner Sharat Sabharwal at his residence at
The prosperity of the people of both sides and
sustainable peace in the region can be ensured by good
relations between the two countries, he said.
Tensions along the Pakistan-India border will not help
in improving relations between the two countries, he said.
Both sides should make efforts to defuse the tensions
as cordial relations between them are very important for peace
in the region, he added.
Sharif further said that India should initiate
concrete measures to resolve the outstanding Kashmir dispute
and to revive the stalled composite dialogue process.
The Kashmir issue must be resolved in accordance with
UN resolutions, he said.

Pakistan and efforts are underway to eliminate
misunderstandings between the two sides.
Joint efforts are needed for regional peace and
progress, he said.
