G8 FOREIGN MINISTERS' STATEMENT ON INDIA AND PAKISTAN
May 31, 2002
We, the G8 Foreign Ministers, are gravely concerned about the risks inherent in the current crisis between India and Pakistan, which could destabilize the region and beyond.
We call on Pakistan, in accordance with its commitments, to take concrete actions immediately to end infiltrations across the Line of Control, and to stop terrorist groups operating from territory under its control.
We call on India and Pakistan to continue to work with the international community to ensure that there will be a diplomatic solution to the current crisis.
We encourage the resumption of dialogue between the two countries, which is the only way forward, and will remain actively engaged in contributing to the peaceful solution of the present crisis
