Discuss Kashmir or no talks


Discuss Kashmir or no talks

Pakistan on Thursday said it would not accept any pre-conditions for resuming dialogue with India and said New Delhi would have to show some flexibility and readiness to discuss all issues, including Jammu & Kashmir, to move forward.

This was stated by Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit in response to questions relating to Pakistan and Kashmir references in Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s Independence Day address. Dr. Singh had said no progress could be made in India-Pakistan dialogue unless Pakistan stopped allowing its territory to be used for acts of terrorism against India.

Responding to this, Mr. Basit said: “We do not agree to any pre-conditions for resuming the dialogue process.” Pakistan wanted result-oriented dialogue, he said. Though all issues were discussed at the July 15 Foreign Minister-level meeting, the two sides could not map future engagement. “If India shows its readiness to discuss all issues, as was decided by the two Prime Ministers at Thimphu, Pakistan is ready to be positive and constructive.”
