Lahore, Apr 23 (ANI): Pakistan's former Foreign Minister Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri said that due to judicial crisis of 2007 the Kashmir issue could not be solved with India.

Speaking in a programme organized under 'Aman Ki Asha' initiative, Kasuri said: "I am satisfied that talks stood where we left."

During Musharraf regime Pakistan and India were close to resolve Kashmir dispute and both parties, Pakistan and India, had agreed on a joint mechanism to settle the issue, The News quoted Kasuri, as saying.

"Kashmiris demanded right of self-determination and withdrawal of all Indian forces from the occupied territory. Indian PM Manmohan Singh was to visit Pakistan in late 2006 but Indian elections and judicial crisis in Pakistan sabotaged all efforts," Kasuri said.

"It was also decided that the neither of the parties would claim victories after the talks," he added. (ANI)
