NEW DELHI: Pakistan’s High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit said that Pakistan and India must remain in touch regarding all matters including terrorism, and urged India to keep politics away from sports. Abdul Basit expressed his views while giving an interview to Indian newspaper The Hindu, and said the meetings of Pakistan with Hurriyat leaders must be taken positively, as these meetings help to understand a better solution of prolonged controversy of Kashmir.
Abdul Basit told that Pakistan considers Hurriyat Conference as the representative of people of occupied Kashmir. Pakistan will take no time to determine the procedure of holding dialogues once India is interested, he remarked. Commenting on Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav’s case, the high commissioner said Jadhav’s confession proved Pakistan’s concerns.
Abdul Basit said that both countries should not only play cricket with each other, but also the sports. He added that it is not a sane decision to suspend sports activities until the problems are solved.=DNA
