General Qamar Ahmed Bajwa, Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff has called for India and Pakistan to ‘bury the past.
Pakistan Army chief’s statement is being seen as an outreach to India as relations between the 2 neighboring countries have been hostile for some time now.
Bajwa further said the burden is on India to create a ‘conducive environment’ and the US also has a role to play in ending regional conflicts between the 2 countries.
In a conference in Islamabad, General Bajwa said “We feel it is time to bury the past and move forward. But India will have to create a conducive environment, in Kashmir particularly.
According to the General, the economic potential of South and Central Asia has “forever remained hostage” to the India-Pakistan disputes.
General Bajwa further said that his country (Pakistan) has “hope” in the form of US President Joe Biden’s new administration, who according to him has said could help facilitate peace in the region.
