Pak Opposition rejects Clinton-Sharief deal on Kargil
The combined Opposition in the Pakistani Senate has rejected the Islamabad-Washington agreement on Kargil between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharief and US President Bill Clinton on July 4.
Talking to reporters in Islamabad last night, a spokesman said the combined Opposition had decided to seek from the government a clarification on whether what was announced after the Clinton-Sharief meeting was "a declaration or an agreement".
The Opposition said: "If it was an agreement, then why was India not a party to it and why was it signed between the USA and Pakistan alone?"
The spokesman added: "Without India, any agreement on Kashmir or Kargil would be meaningless."
