Abdul Basit says war with India is not a solution
Pakistan’s High Commissioner Abdul Basit claims that Pakistan has nothing to do with the Uri attack and that the country and that the unrest in Kashmir is the root cause of the problem.“We are not thinking in war terms. War is not a solution, war creates more problems. We should not allow war hysteria to dominate our discourse. We have to be mature. We can perhaps afford not to talk to each other for some time, but addressing our many challenges can only happen through dialogue and peaceful means. I hope we are able to retrieve the ground diplomatically. I am a diplomat and an optimist. I hope diplomacy wins,” Basit was quoted as saying.
