No talks with Pakistan if the former considers Kashmir core issue: Vajpayee

ISLAMABAD, Oct 18 (NNI): Indian Prime Minster Atal Bihari Vajpayee has said that his country will not hold talks with Pakistan until it continues to stress on Kashmir being core issue between the two countries and that US has also been informed in this regard.

Immediately after departure of Colin Powell from New Delhi, Prime Minster Vajpayee told reports at launching ceremony of a book that the government had no intention to resume talks with Pakistan. When he was asked that the Pakistan President Musharraf had recently invited him to visit Pakistan by telephone and stressed on continuation of the dialogue process between the two countries which had started at Agra, Vajpayee said Musharraf repeatedly insists on talks but then remains confined to only Kashmir declaring it the core issue between the two countries.

The Indian Prime Minister said he has also informed Powell of his government’s decision of not having talks with Pakistan. According to him the US also admits that Kashmir is not only and most important issue between the India and Pakistan.

However he admitted that the US wants both the countries to resume dialogue process. It may be added that Pakistan President and Indian Prime Minster were scheduled to meet in New York in September but it was postponed following the suicide attack in the US.

Meanwhile, the Indian External Affairs Ministry has announced that the Prime Minster will go to US in the first week of next month. He will first address the UN general Assembly and then go to Washington at the invitation of President Bush.–NNI
