NEW DELHI (APP) - Shahid Malik, Pakistan High Commissioner to India has said Pakistan wants meaningful and resulted-oriented dialogue with India. Talking to newsmen at Pakistan Day reception here Tuesday night, Shahid Malik said unfortunately the recent Pak-India secretary-level talks could not progress substantially. Pakistan had given a road map of talks to India and hoped meaningful dialogue would be held to resolve outstanding issues between the neighbouring countries. To a question on Kashmir, he said Kashmir was a core issue and Pakistan could not ignore it and wanted its resolution according to aspirations of Kashmiris. When asked on IPL decision to exclude Pakistani players from the third tournament, he said, it was not a fair decision as Pakistani players enjoy world class standings. This decision had invited sharp reaction from Pakistanis, he said. Sports should not be mixed with politics, he remarked. He thanked Kashmiri leaders for attending Pakistan Day reception. Shahid Malik said Pakistan had conferred Sitara-e-Imtiaz award on late peace activist Nirmala Deshpandey for her services in promoting peace between Pakistan and India. He paid homage to her services for this noble cause. Speaking on the occasion, APHC Chairman Umer Farooq said role of China and S. Arabia would be welcomed for resolution of Kashmir issue. He said APHC had always encouraged and supported dialogue between Pakistan and India. Mirwaiz, who recently visited Geneva and Saudi Arabia said pressure of the world community was mounting on India for the resolution of Kashmir dispute at the earliest for the sake of peace in South Asia.
