WASHINGTON: Islamabad does not want to further escalate the tensions with New Delhi but desires dialogue to resolve the problems, Pakistan‘s ambassador to the United States Dr Asad Majeed Khan said Monday.
Addressing a gathering at a think-tank in Washington DC, he expressed hope that the “worst has passed”.
India, too, should now act conscientiously and sensibly, the diplomat underscored, adding that he hoped that despite its internal issues, the country would take steps to de-escalate.
Pakistan “downed two of India’s warplanes because it violated our airspace”, he said, urging the global fraternity to take notice of the Indian aggression.
The global fraternity has to understand that instability in the South Asian region is due to the failure to resolve the Kashmir issue, Dr Asad Majeed Khan said.
