ISLAMABAD: PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif has called for resumption of comprehensive talks between Pakistan and India to resolve the long-festering Kashmir dispute.
His statement came in the backdrop of a historic Singapore summit held between US President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong on Tuesday.
In a series of tweets, former Punjab chief minister said that the Singapore summit should set a good precedent for South Asian neighbors to follow.
“Ever since the start of Korean War, the two nations have been at odds with one another; both threatening to use military force with their nuclear arsenals facing each other. If the United States and North Korea can return from the brink of a nuclear flashpoint, there was no reason why Pakistan and India cannot do the same, beginning with a dialogue on Kashmir whose heroic people have resisted and rejected Indian occupation,” he opined.
“International community must focus on the peace process in Afghanistan. Dialogue b/w Pakistan & India over Kashmir should also resume, so that the long-festering Kashmir dispute is resolved in accordance with UN resolutions,” he added.
