Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is likely to express his desire to re-start dialogue with India to reduce tension between the two countries and establish peace process on Kashmir issue.
According to media reports, Nawaz is likely to disclose at the UN steps to de-escalate the tension with India and launch a dialogue on Kashmir.
The Pakistan PM, spoke to army Chief Gen Raheel Sharif on Tuesday night regarding the tensions with India in the wake of the Sunday terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir.
The report suggests, “The Prime Minister and the army chief are believed to have discussed proposals the former intends to make during his speech (at the UN General Assembly) for de-escalating the situation and moving to a dialogue on the Kashmir dispute.”
Sharif is in New York to attend the UN General Assembly session and this was the first conversation between the two since Sunday’s terror attack on an Indian Army camp in Uri that left 18 soldiers dead and pushed India-Pakistan relations to a new low.
Sharif’s speech at the UN on Wednesday is likely to focus on the Kashmir issue and Pakistan-India relations, the report said.
