Russia moots G-8 demarche condemning Kashmiri separatists

Russia has suggested that G-8 foreign ministers should issue a joint statement condemning Pakistan-based Kashmiri separatists and urging India and Pakistan to resume political dialogue.

Quoting Italian sources, Interfax news agency said Moscow was seeking to step up diplomatic efforts amid growing India-Pakistan tension and had forwarded its proposal to the current G-8 chairman, Italy, and other member states.

"The essence of the [Russian] statement is to express concern about the situation taking shape in South Asia after the December 13 attack on the Indian Parliament by Kashmiri separatists, who have taken shelter in Pakistan," Interfax sources said.

G-8 is an elite club of world's seven most industrialised democracies - Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, US and Russia.

Meanwhile, foreign ministers of India and Russia on Thursday spoke against "double standards" in combating international terrorism.

In their conversation over phone, Jaswant Singh and Igor Ivanov said terrorism had become the most dangerous challenge of the modern times.
