ISLAMABAD - Pakistan on Thursday said that the issue of Dr AQ Khan has been settled and no country has objected to softening up the detention of the renowned nuclear scientist. Addressing his weekly press briefing here, the Foreign Office Spokesman Muhammad Sadiq said the issue of Dr Khan was over. He added that Dr Khan had been ill and if there were any relaxation being given to him on the part of new government, it had not been opposed by any state. To a question, he said that discussion on the core issue of Kashmir would be the main part of composite dialogue between Pakistan and India adding that it would be an important issue in the review meetings of 4th round of talks being held in Islamabad next month. He said, "Pakistan believes that focus needs to be on the resolution of Kashmir dispute, which has caused so much suffering to Kashmiri people in Indian held Kashmir." He said we hoped that Kashmir issue would be resolved as soon as possible. When asked about the suggestion by National Conference (Kashmir) president Omar Abdullah for the setting up of a truth and reconciliation commission in Kashmir, Sadiq said, "Relations between India and Pakistan need to focus on the resolution of the core dispute. Once that is resolved, a truth and reconciliation commission can be formed." He said that a similar body had been set up in South Africa after the end of apartheid. He also expressed Pakistan's concern over the reports about the discovery of large number of graves of unidentified persons in Kashmir saying India should allow international rights groups to conduct an independent investigation into the matter. Commenting on a letter written by the US Democratic party legislators to President George Bush to refocus on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, Sadiq said a comprehensive strategy encompassing political and socio-economic development and security was essential to eliminate the menace of terror. Answering another query, he said Pakistan had always taken measures in accordance with standards set by IAEA and Afghanistan had not complained to Islamabad about dumping of nuclear waste on Afghan soil. He added that the news report in that regard was baseless. To a question, Sadiq said Pakistan opposed any politicization of the Beijing Olympics and foresaw no trouble when the torch relay would reach to Islamabad next week. "We are against politicizing this great sporting event and we believe that politics should be kept aside from it," he adding that the Olympic torch relays and Games themselves should be allowed to continue without being politicized." Asked if he foresaw any protests when the torch rally passes through Islamabad on April 16, Sadiq replied, "No I don't." Answering another query, Sadiq said Pakistan's mission in Abuja, Nigeria had been following the procedures recommended by ANF and security agencies for issuing visa to Nigerian nationals. He was asked to comment on a report regarding alleged irregularities in issuance of visas to Nigerian nationals. He said the news story gave an incorrect picture and is regrettable. He said that according to those procedures Nigerian nationals intending to visit Pakistan for business purposes were required to produce, invitations from well-established Pakistani companies, local company sponsor document, certification from the Nigerian National Drug Law Enforcement Agency and a certificate from a Pakistani chamber of commerce. He said Pakistan was cooperating with the international community in fighting the menace of drug trafficking. He said Pakistan's efforts in that regard were appreciated internationally adding that the challenge of narcotics trade required intensified international efforts. He said, "Pakistan seeks close and friendly relations with African countries and have a consistent policy to promote any strengthen relations with them."
