Indian leaders likely to visit Pakistan
ISLAMABAD: Members of an informal Indian Kashmir Committee and other Indian leaders are expected to visit Pakistan next month to hold dialogue with Pakistan’s Kashmir Committee on possible solutions to the decades-old dispute.
Mushahid Hussain, PML secretary general, told Daily Times on Tuesday that the Indian leaders would reach Pakistan after a visit by a PML delegation to India. The informal Indian Kashmir Committee was set up by the Vajpayee government. Mushaid said Hamid Nasir Chattha, chairman of Pakistan’s Kashmir Committee, agreed to receive and hold informal dialogues on Kashmir with the Indian leaders. The basic role of Pakistan’s Kashmir committee is to highlight the Kashmir issue at a national and international level. It is also mandated to advise the government on its policies on Kashmir.
Mushahid, who is also chairman of the Senate standing committee on foreign affairs, said a delegation comprising PML leaders and some prominent Pakistani personalities would visit India from March 28 to 31. staff report
