Lahore, May 25 (ANI): Former Pakistan Foreign Minister Khursheed Mehmood Kasuri has said he is “50 to 60 percent sure” that the peace process between India and Pakistan will resume in six months.

In an interview with Najam Sethi on Dunya News, Kasuri said he had played a vital role in improving ties between Pakistan and India.

“[Former secretary] Riaz Khan and I were involved through back channel in dialogue between the two countries,” the Daily Times quoted Kasuri, as saying.

Both countries had agreed on how to define Kashmir units on both sides, the demilitarisation of borders, and formation of a mechanism that included Pakistan, India and Kashmiris, Kasuri added.

“All Kashmiri leadership was with us on this issue, except Syed Ali Gilani,” he said.

Kasuri said the dialogue stopped in 2006 because of elections in five states of India, and because of the judiciary issue in Pakistan. (ANI)
