NEW DELHI (Agencies) - India Wednesday dismissed the possibility of a swap with the US on Kashmir problem for a permanent seat in the UN Security Council and said that Washington feels that it is an issue to be sorted bilaterally with Pakistan, Zee News reports. Indian External Affairs Minister SM Krishna also asserted that Indias role as non-permanent member, which it won in the UNSC on Tuesday, will not be encumbered by any issues. He does not share the impression that the current phase of the problem in the Kashmir Valley and its handling gave India a different image in the outside world. To my mind it sounds all speculative. These are kites being flown. There is no truth in it. The US has been conveying to India that we should sort out the issue. If similar suggestions are put we take them with seriousness, Krishna said at a breakfast meeting with editors here. He was asked about reports that US President Barack Obama, who is to visit India next week, wants India to sort settle the issue with Pakistan and that Washington would help India get permanent membership of the UNSC. On Pakistan raking up Kashmir in the UNGA session recently, the Indian Minister said Kashmir issue has always been there for the last more than 60 years but it was frozen in the UN for a long time. He was also asked whether the handling of the Kashmir issue in its current phase harmed its image and could encumber its role as a non-permanent member of the Security Council.
