Islamabad, Oct 24 (UNI) The composite dialogue process between India and Pakistan has ushered in a qualitative change in bilateral relations, Chairman Senate Foreign Relations Committee Mushahid Hussain Sayed said.
''These negotiations paved the way for broad national consensus on resolution of issues,'' Mr Sayed told a 13-member delegation of Royal College of Defence Studies, UK.
He said relations between the two countries were improving and the credit for this went to the leadership of the two countries.
Mr Sayed, who is also the Secretary General of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League, pointed out that Pakistan, under the leadership of General Pervez Musharraf took major initiatives in this regard and, besides resolution of other issues, laid focus on the resolution of the ''core issue'' of Kashmir through dialogue.
He said in the aftermath of 9/11 attacks on the US and the backlash in Afghanistan there was a spurt in terrorist activities in the region.
