Suggesting that India and Pakistan take steps to isolate the hawks in both countries, Pakistan Prime Minister Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali on Thursday assured that he would find a way out of domestic pressures to resolve the Kashmir issue and that there would be no break in Indo-Pak dialogue now on.
"The unfortunate part is having some of the hawks on both sides...I think a few gestures and acts have to be made so that we can get to a consensus at a level where we could take proper and appropriate decisions," Jamali told BBC's Urdu service in an interview.
Advocating a measured approach towards building a consensus for resolution of problems, he said: "Well, you can't just jump up and start talking at once. It has to be a step-by-step measure that has to be taken. They have said a few things, we have said a few things, I think at a best time it has to start."
On being asked what he thought about the seriousness of his Indian counterpart, Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Jamali said: "As I spoke to Vajpayee on telephone, I felt that he has the will to resolve this long-standing dispute and I am sure we can do it and we will do it."
