Stalled India-Pakistan talks to figure in Sharif-Obama meeting

Islamabad, Oct 13 (IANS) Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will discuss the stalled dialogue between Pakistan and India with US President Barack Obama during their upcoming meeting on October 22, adviser to the prime minister on foreign affairs and national security Sartaj Aziz said.

“A number of other issues would also be discussed between the US president and Sharif,” Dawn quoted Aziz as saying on Monday.

He said Indian state institutions, including the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), are involved in terror activities in Pakistan, adding that there would be no compromise on Pakistan’s foreign policy. Rising tensions between the two countries are “hazardous to world peace”, he added.

Aziz said the dossier alleging Indian involvement in subversive activities in Pakistan, which was given to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon last month, would also be shared with other friendly countries.

The comments come after the Delhi-bound Samjhauta Express, carrying both Indian and Pakistani passengers, was recently called back from the Wagah border to the Lahore railway station after Indian authorities cautioned their Pakistani counterparts of disruptive farmers protests in India’s Punjab province.
