Islamabad, Jan.5 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani Monday urged the U.S. to extend its help to both India and Pakistan towards resolving the issue of Kashmir.

In an interview in Srinagar, Abbas said that settling the issue was necessary to ensure peace and security in South Asia.
Gilani also urged the US to take swift measures for the halt of Israeli aggression and hand over Pakistani prisoners in US detention.
The regional tension, South Asian affairs, the war against terror, Pak-India tension and other issues came under discussion during the meeting. (ANI)
