LONDON: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Saturday that sooner or later India would have to consider the four-point peace proposal he presented at the United Nations General Assembly.

Talking to journalists at the airport here before leaving for Pakistan, the prime minister said he had raised all relevant issues in his speech at the UN assembly and given concrete proposals for their resolution so as to reduce tensions between the two countries.

He said that proxy war against Pakistan from across the border should come to an end.

Mr Sharif said Pakistan had the evidence of involvement of Indian spy agency RAW in subversive activities and had shared it with the United Nations. He was confident that the dossiers Pakistan handed over to the UN would have considerable impact.

In reply to a question, he said the international community was listening to Pakistan’s stance on Kashmir and peace could not be achieved by hurling allegations.

He said tension in the region had affected the development process and there was no other method to resolve the outstanding issues except dialogue.

Mr Sharif said both Pakistan and India needed to adopt a balanced approach towards resolution of the issues. The sooner the dialogue process started the better it would be for the two countries.
