Birmingham: India has not responded positively to Pakistan's good will gesture as New Delhi is trying to indulge Pakistan in minor issues as an attempt to divert international community's attention from the core issue of Kashmir. 'India is exploiting recent Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) announced by Pakistan as Indian leaders even are not ready to talk about Kashmir issue, instead they were focusing their attention on other minor issues,' Tehreek-I-Kashmir Britain President, Muhammad Ghalib said while speaking at a meeting here the other day. He briefed the party leaders and workers about the latest situation of Pak-India relations. He said New Delhi has not responded positively vis-à-vis Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) announced by Pakistan as India has intensified fencing of Line of Control and working boundary . 'India, despite ceasefire, is engaged in fencing at Line of Control, which should be a matter of great concern for Pakistan,' he added . He said Kashmir is the core issue between India and Pakistan and durable peace in the region not possible without resolving Kashmir dispute under the United Nations resolutions and in accordance with the Kashmiris aspirations . A resolution was also passed during the meeting unanimously, in which Pakistan government asked to take notice of Indian leaders attitude. The resolution also lauded Pakistan's recent peace initiatives and efforts for the peaceful resolution of Kashmir issue in order to establish durable peace in the region. However, it regrets that Indian attitude is not up to the mark and it seems that Indian leaders were not ready for any progress towards solution of long standing issue of Kashmir. The Indian government is trying to indulge Pakistan in other minor issues, which is designed to avert international community's attention from the core issue of Kashmir, the resolution said. In these circumstances Pakistan should review its policy and expedite diplomatic efforts to expose Indian belligerent attitude at international level. Pakistan should also inform the world community about fencing at Line of Control and working boundary by Indian forces following the ceasefire, it maintained.
