Kashmir issue: Norway ready to mediate

SRINAGAR: Norwegian foreign minister, Borge Brende, has described the situation in Kashmir as “very delicate”, stating that his country is available for mitigating tensions between Pakistan and India.
According to a Radio Pakistan report, the minister, while speaking at a joint press conference along with adviser to Pakistan prime minister on Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz, said that India and Pakistan were friends of Norway.
“We’re available as friend of Pakistan as well as India’s to play the role of a mediator and not add fire to what is going on, and if I made a very strong statement, it will be counterproductive for any such role which Norway wants to play,” he has said in the presser held after a meeting in Islamabad.
He said Pakistan and Norway have agreed to enhance economic and investment relations for expanding trade and business in the better interest of the people of the two countries.
