Pakistan-India relations


While addressing a joint press conference in Islambad with Pakistan’s Advisor to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz, British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond urged Pakistan and India to not allow “non-state actors” and other pressure groups to derail the peace process. The British foreign secretary welcomed Pakistan’s initiative in holding investigations into the Pathankot airbase attack and hoped that the country would quickly make progress in going after the Pakistan-based militant groups being blamed for masterminding the attack.
