Pakistan FM phones Zarif, discusses Kashmir dispute

Politics - Foreign Minister of Pakistan Khawaja Muhammad Asif has telephone his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif and discussed the situation in Kashmir, local media reported.

According to reports, Asif also contacted Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu on phone to discuss the Kashmir dispute.

Meanwhile, Pakistan and India have hinted at lowering the current heightened tensions with a step-by-step approach leading to the resumption of the comprehensive dialogue process.

The understanding reached between the two neighbors following Indian High Commission Ajay Bisaria’s meeting with National Security Adviser Lt-Gen (retd) Nasser Khan Janjua.

The official handout says that the two discussed matters pertaining to improving bilateral relations, including the recent situation in Kashmir.

It came just days after Islamabad and New Delhi agreed to resolve the controversy over harassment of diplomats through talks.

Since they were partitioned in 1947, India and Pakistan have fought three wars in 1948, 1965 and 1971 two of which were fought over Kashmir.
