Omar, Salman at loggerheads on resolving Pakistan issue

The Indo-Pak dialogue process stands imperiled in the wake of infiltration attempt by 35 to 40 terrorists backed by suspected Pakistani special forces in the Keran sector along the LoC in Kashmir.

Khurshid said, ‘I think much as we feel upset and concerned and hurt by what is happening on the border and the LoC, I think we have to show some perseverance, some patience and some fortitude to ensure that we don’t play into the hands of the forces that want to create trouble.’ Asked whether the Nawaz Sharif government can be trusted, Khurshid made it clear that dialogue is the way forward to resolve issues.

‘Our Prime Minister has said there is no option in the dealing of countries with each other but to trust, but the trust must be matched with our readiness and our insistence on verification.

You have to verify and trust,’ Khurshid said. On the contrary, Omar Abdullah on Wednesday seemed upset and said: ‘Despite talks between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Nawaz Sharif, thinking that relations will get normalised in such a situation is impossible.

We will surely talk, but the results that we want out of that dialogue, we cannot achieve those till such things (infiltration and ceasefire violations) are not stopped,’ Abdullah said.
