Washington DC: The Pakistani embassy here officially has conveyed Islamabad’s concern to the United States over the American military Chief General George W Casey’s reported visit to Siachen in the Indian occupied Kashmir. Washington officially considers Kashmir as a disputed region between Pakistan and India whereas the senior US military leaders’s visit could be interpreted as endorsement of New Delhi’s position. Pakitan and India are engaged in a dialogue process to resolve the decades-old Kashmir dispute and experts say visits by foreign officials to the Indian occupied territory could undermine the peace talks.
