Islamabad: Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif on Saturday said Pakistan is ready for talks with India if New Delhi was serious about resolving the Kashmir issue which, he said, is the “main cause of unrest” in the region.
Pakistan had offered talks on outstanding issues several times but India did not reciprocate it, Sharif said. “Kashmir was main cause of unrest in the region and India must show seriousness for resolution of the issue and honour its commitment under UN Security Council Resolutions,” Sharif was quoted as saying. Sharif dismissed Uri attack and infiltration allegations against Pakistan.
At the time of going to press, it was reported that a police vehicle was attacked in Handwara district of J&K.
