PAKISTAN’s NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER NASSER JANJUA SAID PAKISTAN & INDIA CAN NOT REMAIN ENEMIES FOREVER:

Pakistan’s National Security Adviser Nasser Janjua has said Pakistan and India ‘cannot remain enemies forever’ and they need to engage and resolve bilateral disputes.  The NSA was talking to Canadian High Commissioner Perry Calderwood who called him to Islamabad on 11th. April  “We need to engage with each other and resolve disputes,” Janjua was quoted as saying by the official Associated Press of Pakistan.  Janjua reiterated Pakistan and India cannot remain enemies forever.  The two sides discussed regional dynamics and bilateral ties, Pakistan’s role in eradicating terrorism, counter-terrorism cooperation, the implementation of the National Action Plan and Pakistan-India relations with reference to the United States’ offer for mediation.  Janjua underscored the need for a non-discriminatory approach while considering Pakistan’s membership for Nuclear Supplier Group.  He claimed that the international community is overlooking Kashmir issue due to their own strategic interests related to India.  Although India considers Kashmir a bilateral issue, it has defeated the spirit of bilateralism by defying any dialogue over it, claimed Janjua.  “Extreme thoughts are to be mitigated through a change of perception, by winning hearts and minds and not by use of force alone,” he said.  Rediff.com : 12th.
