    Resume foreign secretary-level talks: Pak to India

    LAHORE: Pakistan has called on India to resume foreign secretary-level talks to resolve all outstanding issues, saying with peace the menace of poverty, illiteracy and injustice in the region can be eradicated.

    "Although the Indian foreign secretary visited Pakistan on March 3 this year but it was 'a goodwill gesture'. The formal talks have yet to resume," Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's adviser on foreign affairs Sartaj Aziz said.

    Aziz made the remarks at a seminar titled 'Muslim-Sikh Dosti Di Tarjman — Baisakhi (Baisakhi represents Muslim-Sikh friendship)' here at the Lahore Fort last evening.

    "Pakistan believes in peace in the region and desires to initiate dialogue on all issues with India. If there will be peace, we all can eradicate the menace of poverty, illiteracy and injustice in the region," he said.

    He urged India to resume the process of dialogue as agreed by the two premiers — Nawaz Sharif and Narendra Modi — during their meeting last year.

    Aziz expressed wonder at the "inordinate delay" by India in resuming foreign secretary-level talks.

    "Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif after 2013 general elections had announced an economic and social development roadmap for the country through developing good relations with the neighbours, including India. Under this policy, Mr Sharif went to India and took part in the oath-taking ceremony of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi," Aziz said.

    During their meeting on May 27, 2014, both premiers agreed to resume foreign secretary-level talks.

    "And on August 25, subsequently India conveyed to us about sending its foreign secretary to Islamabad in this regard," he said.

    When foreign secretary S Jaishankar visited Islamabad, he was on a goodwill visit to Saarc countries and that only Saarc-related matters were discussed by him during his visit in March, Aziz said.

    India had cancelled foreign secretary-level talks in August last year because the Pakistan high commissioner in New Delhi held consultations with Kashmiri separatists.

    No date has been fixed for next round of foreign-secretary-level talks.

    More than 1,700 Indian Sikhs have come here to take part in Baisakhi festivities.

    Aziz also talked about Pakistan's efforts to protect the rights of minorities in the country.

    "Now every Sikh or Hindu knows well that Pakistan is doing a lot for them. And the Baisakhi, I will say it represents an unending friendship between Sikhs and Muslims," he said.

    They want visas for Ajmer Sharif. Simple.... On the one hand the star messenger of "peace" Hafiz Sayeed has announced that Pakistan Army and JUD support Jihad in Kashmir.


    ISLAMABAD/NEW DELHI: Outlawed Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Saeed on Friday admitted that his organization helps the Pakistani army in "waging jihad" in Jammu and Kashmir.

    During a TV interview on Friday, Hafiz Saeed said: "We support the Pakistani government and Pakistan army in their efforts to help the people of Kashmir. And, we call it jihad."

    Hafiz Saeed was speaking on the issue of arrest of separatist Masarat Alam by the J&K government.

    On Friday, separatist leader Masarat Alam Bhat was arrested on sedition charges from his home in Habbakadal area of the city, apparently after the Centre pushed for it.

    Nothing wrong in talking. No argument against talking.

    Why talk and give credence and legitimacy to the obdurate mish mash that emanates from Pakistan in the name of talks.

    The best is to ignore them and treat them as tankhaiyas (social outcasts) so that they get desperate and hot under their collar till they get sense to do real talking.
