Doors for talks with Pak never shut: India
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Feb 2: India today said the doors for talks with Pakistan were never shut but remained non-committal on resumption of dialogue with it amid reports of Home Minister P Chidambaram’s likely visit to Islamabad.
“On talks with Pakistan, the doors were never shut,” External Affairs Minister S M Krishna told reporters when asked whether the composite dialogue process with Pakistan was set to resume.
He made it clear that even in the previous dialogue with Pakistan, the focus had always been on militancy and militant instrumentalities that exist there and had to be dismantled.
“Well, the focus has always been on militancy and militant infrastructure in Pakistan. The militant infrastructure in Pakistan has been the focal point of dialogue with Pakistan and will continue to be the focal point,” was Krishna’s refrain when asked whether the Home Minister was scheduled to visit Islamabad.
The Minister said that Pakistan should investigate further the Mumbai attacks case and bring the perpetrators of attacks to justice.
“We expect, based on the dossiers provided from the Indian side, I think they (Pakistan) should investigate further and bring the perpetrators of the Mumbai attack to justice,” Krishna said.
