Islamabad: Pakistan Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry invites his Indian counterpart S. Jaishankar to visit Islamabad for talks on Jammu and Kashmir.
The Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan was called by Chaudhry and handed over an invitation addressed to Jaishankar, the Foreign Office said.
The letter highlights the international obligation of both the countries to resolve the Jammu and Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions, the letter said.
Pakistan’s foreign policy chief Sartaj Aziz announced last week that the Foreign Secretary would write to his Indian counterpart to extend a formal invitation for the talks.
India and Pakistan dispute the ownership of Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan holds the northern third of the state and India the southern two-third. He had said Pakistan would invite India forthe Kashmir talks despite their stalled Composite Dialogue process.
