He said that Indo-Pak relations were improving and its credit goes to the leadership of the two countries.

He said Pakistan under the leadership of President Pervez Musharraf took major initiatives and in addition to resolution of other disputes, laid focus on resolution of core issue of Kashmir through dialogue.

He further said that there was no breakthrough on the core issues betwwen the two neighbours due to Indian intransigence.

Sayed made these observations while talking to a delegation of Royal College of Defence Studies, UK, at the Parliament House.

Sayed briefed the British team on Pakistan’s foreign policy, especially Pakistan-India relations, regional cooperation and war on terrorism.

He said after 9/11 the issue of terrorism came to the limelight and Pakistan had to suffer the backlash of events in Afghanistan, as its President and Prime Minister became the targets of suicide attacks.

Underlying the need for a policy review by the Western countries, Sayed pointed out that the observations and comments about Islam emanating from some leading figures of Western countries widened the credibility gap between the Muslim countries and the West.

Sayed opposed the use of force for resolution of issues, the Daily Times reported.

He welcomed the proposal put forward by Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai for initiating dialogue with moderate forces in Afghanistan including the Taliban for peace in the region. (ANI)
