Russia says can’t involve in Kashmir

Russia on Thursday ruled out playing a role in resolving the Kashmir problem, saying India and Pakistan are capable of settling their outstanding issues themselves.

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said India and Pakistan are capable of settling issues though bilateral discussions without outside help.

India and Pakistan were in touch and talking to each other, Lavrov noted while speaking through an interpreter during a joint news conference with Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar.

‘We discussed this issue. We welcome steps Pakistan and India have taken on confidence-building measures. Both countries are capable of settling their issues on their own without any foreign assistance,’ Lavrov said.

The two countries have ‘established diplomatic traditions’ and the ongoing contacts between India and Pakistan are a ‘good’ development, he said.
