Pakistan ready to accept Russia’s mediation to resolve crisis with India
Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said Islamabad is ready to accept Russia's offer to act as a mediator between Pakistan and India.
The minister said that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has offered to mediate. "I don't know about India, but I want to say this to Russia that Pakistan is ready to come to the table and de-escalate tensions," TASS cited Qureshi as saying.
Yesterday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Russia was ready to suggest hosting the talks between India and Pakistan to achieve settlement, if they wished that.
