Sirisena calls for discussion to ease India-Pak tension

British Asia News Network- AD

Colombo: President Sirisena on Saturday called on Shahid Ahmad Hashmat Pakistani High Commissioner and suggested dialogue to diffuse tensions between India and Pakistan.

Radio Pakistan quoted the Sri Lankan President as saying that the military escalation between Pakistan and India is affecting the entire region.

During the phone call, Hashmat noted that the repeated measures taken by Prime Minister Imran Khan to de-escalate tensions across the Line of Control would prompt the international community to call for dialogues and negotiations between New Delhi and Islamabad to ensure a peaceful resolution between the two neighbouring countries including the Kashmir issue.
