Pakistan wants India show flexibility

IRNA

Islamabad, Dec 23, IRNA - Pakistan asked India on Tuesday to show 
flexibility as leaders of both the countries meet in Islamabad 
early next month. 
Replying to questions at a briefing here, Foreign Office 
Spokesman Masood Khan said that a positive tone has been set by 
President Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Mir Zafarullah Khan 
Jamali by confidence building measures to improve relations with 
India. 
The steps included facilitating the agreement of over-flights and 
twelve point package by the Pakistani leaders. 
"It is a challenge for the leadership of the two countries as the 
flexibility has to be two way." 
He said it is a historic opportunity and when the Indian Prime 
Minister Attal Bihari Vajpayee meets Pakistani leaders they must 
move forward. 
Asked to comment on the statement by the Indian Prime Minister 
that there would be no talks until an end to infiltration in Indian 
part of Kashmir, the spokesman described it as regrettable. 
He said Pakistan has shown flexibility and hopes that India would 
respond positively, adding Pakistan also expects from India to ease 
and end "repression" in Kashmir which will help in improving the 
atmosphere and environment for talks.
