Pak ready to hold meaningful talks with India: Qureshi
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Islamabad, July 27: Pakistan has not made any U-turn in the dialogue process with India and it is ready to hold result-oriented and meaningful talks, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said today.
He made the remarks while talking to reporters at the airport in his hometown of Multan.
Pakistan is sincere about the dialogue process and its approach towards meaningful and result-oriented talks is consistent, he said.
Qureshi contended there was inconsistency about the dialogue process on the Indian side.
Dialogue is the only way to sort out outstanding issues with India, including the Kashmir dispute and differences over the sharing of river waters, he said.
Replying to a question on the proposed new Pakistan-Afghanistan Transit Trade Agreement, Qureshi said India had no role in the pact and would not benefit from it.
Asked about the world community’s opposition to the supply of nuclear plants to Pakistan by China, he said Beijing had cleared its position in this regard.
Replying to another question about assertions by America’s civil and military leadership that top Al Qaida leaders, including Osama bin Laden, were present in Pakistan, Qureshi rejected the reports and described them as misleading and baseless.
