Pakistan condemns killing of Hindus in Kashmir
Islamabad, May 2: Pakistan today condemned the killing of 34 Hindus in Doda district in Kashmir as a ''terrorist act'' but said it would not have any impact on the ongoing peace process between Islamabad and New Delhi.
''It is unfortunate. It is a terrorist act and we condemn it.
However, it will not have any impact on the peace process,'' Foreign Office spokesperson Tasneem Aslam said at a press briefing here.
On the proposed meeting between the Kashmiri leaders and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Ms Aslam said Pakistan had all along been emphasising importance of associating Kashmiri leadership with the peace process.
She pointed out that the Kashmiri leaders had been meeting with the Pakistani and Indian leaders and also with each other.
Although the Kashmiri leaders were not sitting on the table, she said that their meetings with the Pakistani and Indian leadership were part of the tri-lateral engagement and Islamabad welcomed it.
