President of Palestinian state Mehmood Abbas has said the Kashmir dispute between Pakistan and India can be resolved through talks.

In an exclusive interview to Waqt News, Abbas stressed that said Pakistan and India were neighbours and could settle the dispute through negotiations.

He was told that many people in Pakistan believed that the Palestinians did not raise their voice in favour of the Kashmir dispute as emphatically as they should.

Abbas said the Palestinians were sympathetic both to Pakistan and India, and that was he had repeatedly urged the two countries to sit together to find a solution, the Nation reports.

According to the paper, in response to a question, he said, the Palestinians had very good relations with India, and had always helped them whenever they were approached for the purpose. (ANI)
