Better Indo-Pak ties crucial for Afghan peace: British PM

Jul 18 2013, 4:12am CDT | by

London, July 18 (IANS) British Prime Minister David Cameron praised India and Pakistan for taking initiative to resume bilateral talks to improve relations and urged them to play a crucial role in bringing back peace to war-torn Afghanistan.

London, July 18 — British Prime Minister David Cameron praised India and Pakistan for taking initiative to resume bilateral talks to improve relations and urged them to play a crucial role in bringing back peace to war-torn Afghanistan.

The British leader said that better Indo-Pak relation is a cornerstone for regional peace and prosperity.

"India and Pakistan can play a crucial role in bringing peace back in Afghanistan," Cameron told the Asian Lite newspaper during his visit to Siemens factory at Lincoln in East England. "Both countries should recognise the fact that a stable, prosperous and democratic Afghanistan is in their interests too".

NATO forces are scheduled to withdraw from Afghanistan by 2014. The western leaders are hoping the regional powers like India and Pakistan will play a crucial role in bringing back stability to the war ravaged nation.

"The newly elected Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is an experienced politician and he believes India and Pakistan can have better bilateral relationship. The Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh takes a similar view," Cameron added. "I hope these two statesmen can act in the interest of both their countries and also the world, fostering better Indo- Pak relations."

Pakistan and India has agreed to draw up a calendar of official-level meetings to resume their bilateral peace talks, which has lost momentum due to Pakistan polls that led to a change of government in Pakistan. The new initiative was announced after a meeting between Indian External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid and Pakistan Prime Minister's Special Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on the side lines of ASEAN Foreign Ministers' meet at Bandar Seri Begawan in Brunei, a first high-level meeting after the new government in Pakistan took over.

Cameron urged India and Pakistan said "India and Pakistan both should recognise the fact that a stable, prosperous and democratic Afghanistan is in their interests too".

Confiscating Jihadi's Passports 'Could Encourage Terrorism At Home'

Oct 24 2014 7:26am CDT | Source: Big Government

The policy of confiscating the passports of radical Muslims has been called into question after it was revealed both terrorist attacks in Canada were perpetrated by people stripped of their travel documents. Martin Couture-Rouleau and Michael Zehaf-Bibeau were both prevented from travelling to Syria to join ISIS, and so instead attacked targets at home instead. Now analysts have warned that the policy of t ...

Support for the UK's continued membership of the European Union is at its highest level since 1991, according to a poll by Ipsos Mori. Latest figures from the polling firm show that 56 percent of people want to stay in the EU, compared to 44 percent two years ago.

Snapshot: UKIP on Course to Win Rochester and Strood

Oct 23 2014 2:59am CDT | Source: Big Government

This morning’s ComRes poll in Rochester and Strood has UKIP defector Mark Reckless 13 points ahead of the Tories in the constituency. Conservative HQ had pretty much openly priced in defeat in Clacton two weeks ago, but losing again on November 20th would be a disaster for them. David Cameron visited the seat last week and plans to make four more trips ahead of the vote. Imagine the mutinous mood in the Tory party if, even after such a high-profile effort, they still went on to lose. UKIP ...

Steyn: Islamic Radicalism Fills the Void Left By Multiculturalism

Oct 22 2014 4:40pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Mark Steyn, author of “The Undocumented Mark Steyn”, argued that homegrown terrorism and the rise of Islamic radicalism are aided by the vacuum left by modern multiculturalism on Wednesday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel. “The modern multicultural state is nothing, it’s a nullity, it’s a hole and so people go looking for identity, and some of them find it in relatively benign things like saving the planet through climate change and other cockamamie g ...

Turkey Is Complicit with ISIS and Unfit to Join the EU

Oct 21 2014 5:23pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Turkey has finally caved in to American pressure and announced it will allow Kurdish Peshmerga fighters to cross over its territory from Iraq to Syria to join the battle against ISIS. But anyone who imagines this grudging concession represents a cooperative move by a Nato ally to help crush the so-called Islamic State would be sadly deluded. Neo-Ottoman Turkey is better disposed towards ISIS than towards the ...

French Government to Amend Legislation to Ban Undesirables From France

Oct 21 2014 9:06am CDT | Source: Big Government

The French government is drawing up plans to ban any immigrant whose "personal behaviour" is deemed to pose a threat to "security or public order". French Prime Minister Manuel Valls has made it clear that he wants to keep certain ‘undesirables’, such as Roma gypsies and east European gangsters out of his country. But critics point out that it would threaten the EU’s freedom of speech, which this weekend the outgoing President of the Commission, José-Manuel ...

Unions Still Supporting Millionaire Public Sector Salaries at the Expense of Their Own Front-Line Workers

Oct 21 2014 8:30am CDT | Source: Big Government

This week front-line civil service workers went out on strike. And on Monday (13th) the public services unions did likewise. They oppose cuts to their wages and their jobs. But at the top of the Civil Service, and higher echelons of Britain’s local councils, wage inflation over the past decade runs at more than 60 percent; and some 38,000 public sector managers earn £100,000 per year, or more. Having worked briefly for Britain's biggest public services union several years a ...

Michael Crick: Judges Could Overturn Tory Victory in Rochester By-Election

Oct 21 2014 7:06am CDT | Source: Big Government

Last week, Breitbart London revealed that the Conservative Party could run into huge problems over spending in the upcoming Rochester and Strood by-election. The party has already spent over £40,000 on an "open primary" selection process, sending each voter in the seat literature for the selection of their candidate. Now, Channel 4 News's Michael Crick says that two lawyers have told him that the party's huge spending could cause them to be subject to a legal ...

Why Immigration Is the Most Dishonest Debate in British Politics

Oct 21 2014 3:32am CDT | Source: Big Government

When David Cameron promised last week that he would have “one last go” at securing curbs on immigration from within the European Union, he knew his rhetoric stood little chance of success. Days later, the President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso confirmed there was “no possibility” the Prime Minister’s plans could succeed, that “it is not up for negotiation”. For all of Cameron’s promises regarding his ‘renegotiation’ of Britain’s relationship with Europe, the obstinate reality ...
