Right time for India, Pakistan to resolve differences: Naidu

By B. Muralidhar Reddy

ISLAMABAD, DEC. 2 . The Pakistan Prime Minister, Shaukat Aziz, has expressed the hope that the process of composite dialogue with India would be successful and both the countries would be able to resolve their disputes, including Kashmir, in a peaceful manner.

Talking to a visiting Indian Parliamentary delegation led by the former Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Chandrababu Naidu, here, Mr. Aziz said that he had a productive visit to New Delhi recently and the response of the Indian leadership to the peace process was positive.

Mr. Naidu, now on a goodwill visit, told Mr. Aziz that it was the right time for the two countries to resolve all their differences and focus on issues related to poverty alleviation, development and employment generation.

Mr. Naidu said that if both the countries did not settle their problems, the people would be the ultimate sufferers. Mr. Aziz concurred with his views.

Mr. Aziz said that Pakistan's desire was for promoting bilateral and people-to-people contact with India to achieve durable peace in the region. He said Pakistan had played a vital role for strengthening SAARC aiming at improving bilateral relations among the member-states.

He praised the economic reforms introduced by Mr. Naidu in Andhra Pradesh.
