New Delhi, December 29  ( JKNT)

Pakistan  on Thursday declared that the Indian reluctance  in resolving the Kashmir issue was the original region for all tensions in the region  and invited Delhi for a dialogue on the issue  in the interest of over all peace in the region.

Addressing a weekly media conference  in Pakistani capital  Islamabad, Pakistan’s Foreign  office spokesman  Nafees Zakaria  said that “ Pakistan wanted  to resolve all issues, including Kashmir, amicably with India . But  India is unwilling to do that.”

Zakaria said that Pakistan was  all for the resolution of Kashmir issue under the United Nations Security  Council ( UNSC)  resolutions, but regretted that  India  was not responding to Pakistan’s plea for dialogue and resolution of Kashmir crisis.

However, while toeing this traditional line of Pakistan,  Islamabad has refused to acknowledge that the real problem in Kashmir is Pakistan sponsored terrorism.

That is where the matters are stuck. It has now resorted to  agitation  mode in streets to target India and to make  it to stretch its resources to contain the street protests . But it received a major set back when its  mouth pieces  Hurriyat Conference had to scale down the level of protests following public disillusionment with the  deadly protests.
