Islamabad: PML Secretary Information and MNA Kashmala Tariq has welcomed Pak-India dialogue process saying that governments of both sides showed sincerity in their talks to resolve their issues.

Talking to media after her visit to India on Tuesday, she urged that both countries should show commitment that in future unfortunate incidents like Mumbai attacks should not affect relations and dialogue process.Kashmala welcomed relaxation in visa policies and asked for people to people contact, that the trust deficit might be overcome.If both the countries gave peace a chance, the defence budget would be automatically decreased and that money could be spent for the welfare and development of both the nations, she added.

She said that mostly Indians were of the view that 2004 and 2007 was the Golden Era between India and Pakistan, and when issues between the two countries were on the track to be resolved, some unseen and hidden forces created such environment to derail dialogue process and ultimately shattered Pak-India relations.

PML leader highlighted that India had established Custom House at its Wagah Border spending 6 Billion Indian rupees while Pakistan had not taken such measures, which was extremely unfortunate. She also suggested importing products directly from India.She said that Indo-Pak deteriorated relations had effected the whole SAARC region due to which trade was zero, both countries should resolve all outstanding issues like Kashmir, Sir Creek, Siachen and learn lesson from their past. – PT
