Hina Rabbani Khar
Beijing, Aug 25: India and Pakistan should learn to live with each other's positions and talk so that "issues" between the two countries do not pass on to the next generation, Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has said.

Khar, who is on her maiden visit to China, said, Pakistan accords priority to improve ties with neighbours specially India and Afghanistan.

Difficulties in the relationship between Pakistan and India should not simply pass on to the next generation, Khar, who was elevated as Pakistan's foreign minister last month, told state-run China Daily. had threw

Besides unresolved "core issues", mutual trust must be built by looking at other issues, she said. Islamabad and New Delhi have to learn to live with each other's positions and talk to each other.

"If we can't learn to trust each other, the issues will be passed on to the next generation," she told Global Times.

On Afghanistan, she said that any action in the war ravaged country should be based on realities on the ground and not on any artificial or preset deadlines.

"Pakistan will support the Afghans'' decisions built on political reconciliation and the strategic agreement reached with countries in the region," she said.

But surprisingly, even Chinese media's focus remained on terrorism emanating from Pakistan, while covering her first visit, in the light of August 1 charge by a municipal government of Kasghar, a city in China's Xinjiang which experienced brutal attacks by Uyghur militants last month.

Highlighting China's concerns, the headline in today's China Daily about her visit was Pakistan Foreign Minister calls for "more robust" anti terror cooperation.
