Sharif to take up Indo-Pak dialogue issue with Obama: Aziz
Islamabad : Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will raise the issue of suspended Indo-Pak peace process with President Barack Obama during his US visit next week, Pakistan’s National Security Advisor Sartaj Aziz has said.
“Yes, this issue (Pakistan-India stalled peace process) and several other issues would be discussed between the US President and PM Nawaz Sharif,” Aziz, Pakistan Prime Minister’s Advisor on Foreign Affairs and National Security, told reporters yesterday.
Sharif is expected to meet Obama on October 22 in Washington during his US trip for which he was invited by the US President.
Aziz also hinted on sharing with the US dossiers on India’s alleged involvement in “subversive” activities, saying that documents shared with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon would also be shared with “other friendly countries”.
He accused India’s state institutions, including the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), of allegedly supporting militants to destabilise Pakistan.
India has always rejected such allegations made by Pakistan.
Aziz also rejected New Delhi’s assertion that Pakistan was supporting non-state actors in India.
Talking about border skirmishes, Aziz said that the rising tension between Pakistan and India was a threat to world peace.
Talking about the suspension of the Samjhuta Express, Aziz said Pakistan has asked the Indian High Commission to extend the visa for those who were scheduled to travel to India by the train.
The train service has been suspended since Thursday due to farmers protest on the Indian side.
