ISLAMABAD Who is at fault, the incumbent Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi or the former one Khurshid Kasuri? TheNation was confused on Monday after the two top guns issued two contradicting statements regarding developments on the Kashmir issue between the two neighbours, Pakistan and India. Foreign Minister Qureshi had denied of any progress made on the Kashmir issue during the past several years. While former Foreign Minister Kasuri strongly reacted to Qureshis statement on Monday and claimed that a remarkable development was made on this burning issue. Talking to TheNation from London on Monday, Khurshid Kasuri, a key member of Musharraf-led government, confirmed that India and Pakistan had almost reached a settlement over the Kashmir issue after a series of back-channel talks during the Musharraf-led government. President Asif Zardari, according to my knowledge, was aware of the details of the back-channel diplomacy and the Presidency has the related record of the details regarding talks on the Kashmir issue, he confirmed. It might be a total disconnection between the Presidency and the Foreign Office over the issue. How is this possible that a Foreign Minister of Pakistan is not in knowledge of this issue of much importance between India and Pakistan? Kasuri wondered. If the Presidency has the record, normally the Foreign Office should have an access to it if it is related to the foreign policy of Pakistan. Moreover, it would be fair assumption that the Presidency would share the details with the Foreign Minister, he added. This correspondent couldnt contact Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi despite repeated attempts for getting his remarks on this issue. Even a text message was dropped at his cell phone requesting to call back, however, the Minister did not bother to answer till filing of this report. It is pertinent to mention here that both India and Pakistan are expected to resume talks this month with special focus on the issues of Kashmir and terrorism.
