He said that the friendship between the two depends upon the solution of Kashmir and anything aimed at pushing the Kashmir issue at the backburner will be detrimental for both the countries.

He said that the armed forces involved in the killing of three people killed in Islamabad on 18th September are still roaming free. The authorities have given them a free hand.
