Benazir describes hijacking as 'successful'
Former Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto has described recent hijacking of an Indian Airlines plane as ''one of the most successful hijackings in the recent history as it succeeded in drawing the attention of the international community to the Kashmir dispute.''
In a statement issued from London yesterday, she said New Delhi's accusations against Islamabad of sponsoring terrorism in various parts of India have never been proved in the past.
She urged both India and Pakistan to defuse tension through revival of dialogue and resolve Kashmir dispute peacefully.
Bhutto supported signing of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty by both India and Pakistan and warned that delay would put Pakistan into a corner.
