US must mediate between India, Pak to resolve issues: Gilani
Islamabad: Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has once again urged the United States and other major countries to mediate between India and Pakistan in order to resolve long pending issues between them, so as to enable Islamabad to focus on the war against terrorism and militancy.
Talking to a visiting US Parliamentary Delegation led by Senator Thomas Carper, Gilani, without mentioning Kashmir, asserted that Pakistan wants a peaceful resolution of all the core issues and disputes with India through restoration of composite dialogue.
Gilani also told the delegation that the US must ‘prioritise disbursement of its economic assistance’ by initiating projects in health, agriculture, education and power sectors in order to improve its public image in the country.
He also expressed the hope that Washington would deliver funds committed by it soon to help Islamabad implement development work in militancy hit areas of the country.
