Last week, Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif stated that the resolution of Kashmir issue was pivotal and will be brought up on all forums and platforms. It would seem that PM Sharif stuck to his word on this one. Late last week, it was learned that India and Pakistan will not be involved in any bilateral talks. One on one talks with India regarding the tensions at the LoC and resolution of Kashmir issue were pivotal however, owing to the schedules of the two leaders (it would seem), the word is mum on any meeting.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, on Sunday, September 27, 2015, urged the UN Secretary-General for implementing the resolutions on Kashmir issue as set forth by UN Security Council. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif met with Ban Ki-moon today in New York and proposed a vote on the longstanding Kashmir issue. The call for plebiscite should yield interesting results as it would demarcate between those in favor of a resolution, and those against. While on the subject of Indo-Pak tensions, PM Sharif was keen on discussing the ceasefire violations on the LoC that India resorts to every now and then. The UN Chief was then urged to play his role and put an end to such unprovoked violations.
In order to discuss such tensions, including the Kashmir issue, with India, UN Chief called for a dialogue between the two neighbors. UN Chief also expressed concerns over the increasing tensions between the two countries, and was also kind enough to offer his own offices for any dialogue that would follow.
At this point, it is uncertain whether India and Pakistan will hold any bilateral meetings, let alone discussing the resolution of Kashmir issue and other tensions. Given the fact that the two premiers will be residing in the same hotel, in the same city, it would make much sense for them to have a talk. Let’s hope for the best here.
