Islamabad, Oct 20 (IANS) Pakistan has urged the US to play its role to ensure strategic stability in South Asia and in resolving the Kashmir issue.
During Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s visit to the US, we will talk about the tension with India on the Line of Control (LoC), Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry told the reporters in Washington on Monday.
Pakistan wants to have good and peaceful ties with its neighbours, including India, and Sharif went to New Delhi for this purpose, but no positive response was received from Indian side, Radio Pakistan quoted Chaudhry as saying.
He said Pakistan’s nuclear programme “is aimed at deterring any aggression and we will never compromise our national security interests”.
He categorically ruled out possibility of any “deal” with the US on nuclear programme.
Pakistan and the US have multi-dimensional ties and their cooperation in trade, energy, defence, counter-terrorism and education is on the rise, Chaudhry said.
