LAHORE: Security advisers of Pakistan and India will take up all outstanding issues, including Kashmir, in their upcoming meeting, Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid said yesterday.

Talking to journalists in Lahore, he dispelled the impression that the Kashmir issue was neglected during the meeting between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi in Ufa, Russia. 

“The agreement to take up all outstanding issues at the security advisers’ meeting is an acceptance of Pakistan’s stance on Kashmir issue and victory of the government,” he said.

“Prime Minister Nawaz has raised the Kashmir issue at all international forums," he stated.

In response to a question, Rashid held former president Pervez Musharraf responsible for weakening the cause of Kashmir at the international level.

Rashid also pointed out that it was India that had suspended the composite dialogue.
