Not an 'Iota of Change' on Kashmir Policy: US


The Obama Administration today said there has not been an "iota of change" on its policy on Kashmir which considers it a bilateral issue between India and Pakistan, dismissing the latest Pakistani efforts to seek US intervention in this regard.

"On Kashmir, our policy has not changed an iota," a senior administration official told a group of reporters during a press conference, as Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif started his US tour during which he will meet President Barack Obama.

Earlier in the day, Sharif, who arrived in the US on four-day official visit, sought US intervention in resolving the Kashmir issue.

Sharif the first by a Pakistani Prime Minister in more than five years. He is scheduled to meet Obama at the White House on October 23.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the senior official reiterated the well stated position of the Obama Administration that it is for India and Pakistan to determine the "pace, scope and character of their dialogue on Kashmir".

India has dismissed such a move.

Senior administration officials, however, expressed concerns over the terrorism emanating from inside of Pakistan and the impact this could have on the on-going peace talks between India and Pakistan after Sharif was voted to power in May this year.

"Cleary we would be concerned about the terrorist groups that would derail that dialogue process," the official said.

While the focus of the Obama-Sharif meeting would be bilateral relationship, including energy, economy and extremism, in addition to Afghanistan, officials said India would figure in the talks.

"We expect India to come up at some point (during the Obama-Sharif meeting). We have been very encouraged by steps that both India and Pakistan has taken," the senior administration official said.

He listed out the various steps taken by the two countries in this regard, included the recent meeting between the prime ministers of the two nations on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session in New York.

"Obviously (they are) very positive," the official said adding that the Obama Administration is encouraged by steps the two countries have taken to resolve issues on the trade and energy side, in keeping with the "energy and economy theme" that Obama and Sharif would explore here.

The economic relationship, the official said, are particularly important.

Well, no matter what hit's Nawaz on the face or for that matter on bald head. it won't have any affect beside that particular part of the anatomy being more shiny and devoid of any further prospect of a lively thing.

Is that why Uncle Sam is looking the other way while Mujahideen are being shifted from Afghanistan-Pakistan to Indian Occupied Muslim Kashmir? Yes, not an iota of change indeed.

Expect more pro-India replies from USA. Pakistan's incapability to tackle issues is shown by this.

Who is USA to decide India-Pakistan fate, let USA rot alone.

The world is fed up with Islamic terrorism. Any effort by Pakistan to use to terrorism as tool to create any nuisance in any part of India will categorize Pakistan as a rogue state.

Don't want to sound too prudish .... but i guess you missed the whole plot. the steps would have been more like this
1. Cry a river
2. Build a dam
3. Generate Electricity
4. Cry another river.

How can the Indian military be trampled under the feet of a nation that is four times smaller than itself for the past 24 years non-stop, is beyond me? I mean, it's not like Pakistan has the backing of 48 militaries or something like in Afghanistan.

What does the darpoke Indian military get paid for?

Why are you so scared of Pakistan? Hamari mushrooms say kya darr lagta hai?
