The United Kingdom on Thursday said disputes between India and Pakistan should be resolved bilaterally and that no third-party has any role in it. “The loss of lives on either side of the border is sad. India and Pakistan have to discuss all issues bilaterally”, said Sajid Javid, British secretary of state for culture, media and sport.

In a conversation with Hindustan Times, the Conservative MP for Bromsgrove said there is no third party can play a role in resolving issues between the two neighbours.

He was responding to a question on the recent ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the border in Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan has also been urging the United
Nations to play an active role in the Kashmir issue. Javid, who is of Pakistan origin, has visited India a number of times earlier as a banker. “I can see a great deal of energy under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”

The British MP pitched for increasing the business ties between the two countries.
