DUBAI: US Senator John Mc Cain contacted former president Asif Ali Zardari by telephone and exchanged views on a set of issues including tension between Pakistan and India, Kashmir, war on terror and peace and stability in the region.

Zardari said Pakistan has always been victim of terrorism. Pakistan has never supported terrorism and terrorists.

He told the US Senator India wants to hide its atrocities over innocent Kashmiris through  propaganda against Pakistan and the policies being pursued by Indian premier Modi will strengthen non state actors on both sides of border.

He added that Pakistan wanted to solve the Kashmir issue through dialogue.

The US Senator appreciated Pakistan’s role in fighting terrorism. He lauded the sacrifices of Pakistanis for the War on Terror.
