Indo-Pak relations have never been this good in the last 60 years: Pak Foreign Office

“The composite dialogue is very positive and Pakistan-India relations have never been this good in the last 60 years, but results should not be expected overnight,” said Pakistan Foreign Office spokesman Muhammad Sadiq.

Sadiq said that India and Pakistan’s internal political situations would not affect the dialogue, and added that there is no instability in Pakistan.

The peace process was moving slowly because of the complex nature of the bilateral ties, he said.

“But we would like to speed up the peace process, especially the talks on Kashmir,” Sadiq added.

Commenting on a reported statement by Bryan Hunt, the US Consul General in Lahore, on Pakistan’s political situation, Sadiq said if it was proven that Hunt had made such a statement, it would be considered against diplomatic norms and the matter would be taken up with the US Administration.

He said that Iran had not asked for Pakistani assistance about the reported kidnapping of a Japanese student, but Islamabad would be happy to help if a formal assistance request is made.

“Pakistan would fully cooperate with Iran and Japan if asked,” he said.

He also said that talks on the Iran-Pakistan-India (IPI) gas pipeline were moving in a positive direction, the Daily Times reported. (ANI)
