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".

The British government is close to identifying the Islamic state militant responsible for decapitating American journalist James Foley. The gruesome video depicting Foley's murder provided authorities with critical information regarding the masked man who until now has been known only by his nickname, "Jihadi John." One of the most important clues is his accent. Linguists who studied the video said it appears he was educated in the UK and is likely from S ...

Non-white voters now make up more than half of the first-time voters in some of the Conservatives key targets, according to a data study from elections expert Ian Warren.

An Independent Scotland? Please, God, Let it Happen!

Aug 25 2014 6:52am CDT | Source: Big Government

In polite society, the correct opinion to hold about Scottish independence is that the Union must stay together. But I've been wondering: might not England thrive, freed from the yoke of those whining, kilted leeches? The more you think about it, the more persuasive the argument seems to be. I've been invited to debate this question - whether or not we long-suffering Sassenachs would be better off without our sponging C ...
