The issue was taken up on an adjournment motion tabled by Christian Democratic Party's leader Knut Arild Hareide who called for a Norwegian role in pushing India to come to the negotiating table to resolve the long-festering dispute in a peaceful manner which otherwise has the potential to escalate dangerously, Pakistan's foreign office said in a statement.

Norwegian foreign minister Borge Brende, while replying to the Motion, emphasised the need for a dialogue between Pakistan and India to resolve the issue amicably.

Various other members of the Norwegian parliament also spoke and reiterated the need for a peaceful settlement of the dispute, the statement added.
