Pakistan Foreign Office reveals expectation from the US President Donald Trump’s visit to India
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has hoped that the US President Donald Trump during his upcoming visit to India will raise the issue of Kashmir with the Indian leadership.
At her weekly news briefing in Islamabad on Thursday, Foreign Office Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui hoped the offer of mediation expressed by the US President will be taken forward through some concrete practical steps.
The spokesperson said Pakistan welcomes the letter written by the US Senators to the US Secretary of State drawing attention to the plight of people of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
She said voices are growing around the world calling upon India to provide fundamental freedoms to the people of occupied Jammu and Kashmir, lift the draconian laws and ensure the just resolution of the outstanding dispute in accordance with the UN Security Council Resolutions.
When asked about the Afghan peace process, the spokesperson hoped the peace deal between the US and the Afghan Taliban will be signed sooner rather than later, and that it will take into account the interests of all the stakeholders.
The spokesperson expressed the confidence that the deal will lead to intra Afghan dialogue. She said Pakistan seeks to see peace and stability return to Afghanistan more than any other country in the world.
