The visiting US Congressional delegation led by Senator John McCain in Islamabad has urged both India and Pakistan to resolve the Kashmir issue through dialogue and asserted that peace in Afghanistan is not possible without Pakistan’s help.

The US delegation on Sunday met Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz and discussed bilateral issues, including terrorism, Pakistan’s relations with India and Afghanistan and regional peace.

Pakistan’s foreign secretary Tehmina Janjua was also present during the meeting.

After the meeting, McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said that Pakistan had a significant role for establishment of peace and stability in Afghanistan.

“Peace and stability in Afghanistan is not possible without Pakistan’s help… Kashmir problem should be resolved in a peaceful way through negotiations.”

He said the US wanted an end to violence in Kashmir, adding that his country would continue its policy on the issue because no change had been made in this regard.
