New Delhi, Oct. 26 (ANI): The Ministry of External Affairs on Saturday said that after the American leadership had dismissed Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's plea for the United States to intervene in the Kashmir issue, it has been globally established that the resolution of issues between India and Pakistan can only be solved bilaterally.
"Globally, it is now established that the template for resolution of issues between India and Pakistan is bilateralism. This is established and accepted by all countries. What you are mentioning is one more fact that this is global practice, and, it has to be bilateralism that would ensure the resolution of all India-Pakistan issues," MEA spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, while on a visit to Washington, had sought the intervention of the United States in resolving the Kashmir issue, despite New Delhi's strong rejection of third party intervention in the matter.
During Sharif's visit to Washington, the United States maintained their stance on intervention, saying India and Pakistan should resolve the matter bilaterally and through dialogue. (ANI)
