Foreign OfficePakistan formally invites India for talks on Jammu and Kashmir

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan on Monday formally invited India for talks on the Jammu and Kashmir dispute, the main bone of contention between the two neighboring countries.

In a statement issued in Islamabad, the Foreign Office said that the Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhry called in the Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale on Monday and handed over a letter addressed to his Indian counterpart, inviting him to visit Pakistan for the talks.

“The letter highlights the international obligation of both the countries, India and Pakistan, to resolve the Jammu and Kashmir dispute, in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions,” the Foreign Office said.

The decision to invite India for exclusive bilateral talks on Jammu and Kashmir dispute had been taken as per recommendation by the three-day Envoys Conference held earlier this month in Islamabad.

“Pakistan, it (Conference) has emphasized, continue to extend full diplomatic, political and moral support to the Kashmiris movement for self-determination,” the prime minister’s advisor on foreign affairs Sartaj Aziz said on August 12 while briefing the media about the outcome of the Envoys Conference.
