ISLAMABAD: Advocating sacrifice in the spirit of give and take to settle the Kashmir issue, the Pakistan Prime Minister, Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali, today told a visiting Indian delegation of parliamentarians and journalists that his country wanted peace in the region. 'Kashmir is the core issue and it cannot be sidelined,' said the Pakistani Premier, who hosted a lunch for the Indian delegates attending a peace conference of parliamentarians and journalists from both sides. Stressing that the two countries must resolve disputes through dialogue, he said 'our desire is that Pakistan and India must live in peace and respect each other,' the Pakistan TV quoted him as saying. Renewing his invitation to the Prime Minister, Atal Behari Vajpayee, Mr. Jamali said a permanent solution to the Kashmir issue could be found if there was a spirit of sacrifice and give and take. The rulers should focus on the resolution of Kashmir dispute, so that the people could live in peace, Mr. Jamali said. PTI
