Canada has sought a peaceful solution to Kashmir issue, saying both India and Pakistan should come forward with a composite dialogue process to resolve the problem.
"The government of Canada continues to encourage the governments of India and Pakistan to move forward with the composite dialogue process, focused upon the resolution of key issues, including Kashmir dispute," Canadian Foreign Minister Laurence Cannon said in a letter written to Mushtaq Jilani, Executive Director of Peace and Justice Forum, according to local media reports.
In his letter, Cannon said his country has several times encouraged both Indian and Pakistani governments to find a peaceful resolution to the Kashmir issue.
Both countries must continue the process of composite dialogue to reach an agreement acceptable for three parties Pakistan, India and Kashmiri people, the letter said.
"Canada also engages in dialogue with like-minded partners to promote sustainable peace in South Asia, including with the members of the G8," it said.
His country will stay involved in resolving the Kashmir issue between India and Pakistan, the minister added.
