Pak says committed to resolve all issues with India through talks.


Pakistan is committed to resolve all outstanding issues, including the Kashmir dispute, with India through talks, foreign secretary Tehmina Janjua said.

Janjua made the remarks on Thursday during a delegation-level meeting with Japanese minister of state for foreign affairs Nobuo Kishi in Islamabad, the Foreign Office said in a statement.

She briefed the Japanese delegation on Pakistan’s efforts to reach out to Afghanistan and India as part of the Prime Minister’s vision for a peaceful neighbourhood, it said.

“She also reiterated Pakistan’s commitment to dialogue with India for the resolution of all outstanding issues including the Jammu and Kashmir dispute,” it said.

Janjua reaffirmed Pakistan’s readiness to make constructive contributions to the promotion of peace and stability in Afghanistan.

She also apprised the delegation of Pakistan’s credentials for the membership of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), while emphasising the need for a criteria based and non-discriminatory approach for new members.

During the meeting, the two sides reviewed the state of bilateral relations and the evolving peace and security scenario in their respective regions.

The foreign secretary highlighted the importance that Pakistan attached to its relations with Japan and underscored the need to further strengthen mutually beneficial economic partnership with focus on promoting trade and investments.

During the two-day visit, Kishi also called upon Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, the National Security Adviser and the ministers for defence, water and power.

His visit coincides with the 65th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Pakistan and Japan. It also marks the 60th anniversary of his grandfather Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi’s visit to Pakistan in May 1957.
