SRINAGAR: The Norwegian Foreign Minister has said there is a very “delicate” situation in Kashmir and his country is available for mitigating tension between Pakistan and India, Radio Pakistan reported.
Speaking at a joint press conference along with Adviser to PM Nawaz Sharif on Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz, after holding a meeting in Islamabad on Thursday, the Norwegian Foreign Minister Borge Brende, said that both India and Pakistan are friends of Norway “hence any statement in Islamabad on Kashmir will make the issue more controversial”.
“We’re available as friend of Pakistan as well as India’s to play the role of a mediator and not add fire to what is going on and if I made a very strong statement, it will be counterproductive for any such role which Norway wants to play,” he added.
