ISLAMABAD - German Ambassador to Pakistan Dr. Michael Koch Tuesday said that Pakistan and India could follow the principle of dialogue and people to people exchanges in order to reach a mutually agreeable resolution of the long-standing dispute on Kashmir. I cant say that German reunification experience is applicable in South Asia, but the principle of reaching a resolution through discussion and dialogue could always be applicable anywhere in the world, he answered a question regarding German position on Kashmir. Addressing a press conference, he clarified that Germany never offered mediation between India and Pakistan, but he said his country would surly support bilateral efforts on part of both the countries to move towards a resolution to issue. Asked for elaboration what German Chancellor Angela Markel had reportedly said about the world order, he said that it was not about criticism of the US policies. Our view is quite clear that the US alone could not accomplish the international communitys goals therefore every stakeholder should be taken on board. To a question about military action verses political solution to the problems in Afghanistan, the Ambassador said, We are partner in the international coalition against terrorism and having third largest contingent of troops in Afghanistan. It is true that the military presence was necessary, but the long-term resolution of the problem was a political empowerment of the Afghan people. Talking about the Government of Pakistans counter-terrorism efforts, the Ambassador said that German was all out to support the fight against extremism. Asked about the Defence ties between Pakistan and Germany, he said, it requires a bilateral agreement while the two governments were already were already working on it. Asked about the Germany position on the Pakistans long standing demand of increasing access to the European market and to sign a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the EU, he said, his country was to support Pakistan. I think to ask for FTA that covers a broad range of issues would be an ambitious target to start with. Pakistan, therefore, should be moving ahead step by step. Explaining the issue of market access, he said Pakistan was already having access to the EU markets, therefore, it was the issue only enhancing it. It needs to be understood that EU is the most important trade partner of Pakistan and within EU it is Germany, which is the most important partner for your country. Therefore, you must acknowledge that the most important member of the EU is fully supportive of your viewpoint, he maintained. The German Ambassador was addressing the press conference in connection with the ceremonies marking of 20 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall.
