AAPSO hails India-Pakistan Thaw

P.R: 1/Asian Sec/11-1-2004

The three day Summit of the SAARC held in Islamabad, the Capital of Pakistan ended in a great success. This in the first time that SAARC Summit was able to deliberate in an atmosphere of cordiality and steer a course of action plan for South Asia comprising Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. To begin with they agreed for a free trade area to commence from 2006.

The outcome of the Summit was a landmark development. In the past the bi-lateral irritant between India and Pakistan, the two biggest countries always hindered the SAARC process to a dead end. Since of late both India and Pakistan had taken positive actions to develop friendly relations between the two countries. The two countries have restored, Air, Rail and Road transport which came as a great relief for both people.
The whole world has hailed this new development in the Indian-Subcontinent for the exemplary wisdom and foresight shown by the leaders of both India and Pakistan.
The U.N. Secretary-General commended to say that he was “ excited by the actions” and “ applauded the wisdom of the leaders of India and Pakistan” .
AAPSO from its inception had consistantly supported peaceful solution to the thorny issues between India and Pakistan through dialogue. Therefore AAPSO congratulates leaders of India and Pakistan particularly for the successful conclusion of the SAAR Summit.
