Pak FM Khar insists LoC 'incidents' cannot derail Pak-India peace process
Islamabad, Mar. 15 : Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has insisted that Pakistan-India peace process is essential for normalcy in the region, adding that the LoC 'incidents' cannot derail Pakistan's commitment with India to promote peace in the region.
Khar stated this in a written reply concerning overall progress on the Kashmir issue, reports The Express Tribune.
Khar dismissed allegations regarding the recent incidents that occurred near Line of Control (LoC). She said Pakistan has no such record that its security forces opened fire on two Indian soldiers killed earlier this year.
Khar acknowledged that the ministry was disappointed with the Pakistan-India relations and termed the hostile statements from India on cross LoC incidents unfortunate.
She said Pakistan wants resolution of Kashmir dispute but there was not required level of trust at the moment for resolution of the issue through dialogue.
Khar statement comes days after the Indian Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde's allegations that Pakistan was behind an attack in Srinagar, which resulted in the death of two terrorists and five Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel.
