UN chief encourages Indo-Pak to resolve issues
He asked leaders of both the countries to meet and resolve the issues through dialogue, reported Dawn online citing UN spokesperson Stephane Dujarric.
"UN's General Assembly session has always provided an occasion for leaders to talk to each other and sort the issues facing their countries," added Ban Ki-moon.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif are in New York to attend the 70th Session of United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
Tensions between the two countries mounted after national security adviser level talks were called off in August as India refused to discuss Kashmir during the meeting.
