ISLAMABAD (Reuters): Pakistan’s cricket star-turned-politician Imran Khan said India and Pakistan should resolve their dispute over the divided Kashmir region through talks as he declared victory yesterday in Pakistan’s still-disputed general election.

“The leaders of Pakistan and India should sit down at a table and resolve the Kashmir issue,” Khan said in a victory speech yesterday.

Khan’s party has a commanding lead in partial election results, but supporters of jailed ex-prime Nawaz Sharif alleged rigging in the vote count, calling the process an assault on democracy in a country that has a history of military rule.
