India ready to talk on Kashmir issue


India has made it clear that it was willing to discuss the issue of Jammu and Kashmir with Pakistan within the framework of bilateral agreements of Simla Pact and Lahore Declaration.

Indian External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin was reacting to Pakistan government’s remarks that the Pakistan-India dialogue without discussions on Kashmir was “unacceptable”.

“As regards engagement with Pakistan, we have made it very clear that we will engage in the framework of Simla agreement and Lahore Declaration and both these provide for discussing all outstanding issues, including Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.

Previously, Pakistani National Security Advisor Sartaj Aziz had said that Islamabad offered talks to New Delhi in “good faith” but holding a dialogue without addressing the Kashmir issue was unacceptable to Pakistan.


  1. What happened? Just few days ago India revoked the talks with Pakistan, and now ready to talk again? Looks like as if India is performing like a JOKER.
