Pakistan Determined to Solve Kashmir Conflict with India: Shah Mehmood Qureshi

Published

Can India and Pakistan resolve the outstanding Kashmir conflict under new PM Imran Khan? Pakistan wants to improve ties with India and resolve all outstanding issues including the Kashmir conflict and will be not shy of engaging with New Delhi despite the current impasse in relations. This was stated by Pakistan’s New Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi.

You cannot clap with just one hand. We have a positive stance and will remain hopeful,” said Qureshi, who was sworn in as Pakistan’s Foreign Minister on Monday. He also said the “current position of the ties between Pakistan and India was not a secret as peace talks are suspended, but we have to see how we can move forward”.

Relations between India and Pakistan nose-dived in recent years with no bilateral talks taking place, following a spate of terror attacks on Indian military bases by Pakistan-based terror organisations. India has made it clear that it will not hold dialogue with Islamabad as terrorism and talks cannot go hand-in-hand.

“Pakistan wants to improve relations with India and settle all outstanding issues, including Kashmir. He also mentioned Khan’s July 26 victory speech, in which the former cricketer-turned-politician had said that his government would like leaders of the India and Pakistan to resolve all disputes, including the “core issue” of the Kashmir Conflict, through talks. Khan had said that if they (India) takes one step towards us, Pakistan will take two steps.

Qureshi also denied having said that Pakistan would win the Kulbhushan Jadhav’s case in the International Court of Justice. Jadhav was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on spying charges in April 2017. India moved to the ICJ in May the same year against the verdict. The world court has put a stay on Jadhav’s execution on India’s appeal pending the final verdict by it.

Qureshi, while addressing media said that Pakistan has “solid evidence” against Jadhav and was hopeful of winning the case against him at the ICJ. “How I can say that we will win when the matter is sub-judice. I only said that we will put forward Pakistan’s point of view effectively,” he concluded.
