Parleys with Pak without pre-conceived notion: India
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Dec 1: India will attend the proposed Home Secretary-level talks with Pakistan without any “pre-conceived notion” but expects Islamabad to address New Delhi’s all concerns, “particularly on terrorism.”
“As far as the talks with Pakistan go, I would not approach the talks with any pre-conceived notion. I will say what we have to say, I will say what are the facts, how we see them and (share) the evidence that we have (about militant acts). I will say what we expect of them,” Union Home Secretary RK Singh told reporters here today.
He was responding to a question on India’s stand during the proposed Home Secretary level talks later this month. “Militant camps are still there across LoC.
We have specific reports, detailed photographs. There is no question of denying that. We also hear the conversations of militants. We know, we are certain, they are in large number. Attempts (of infiltration) are still continuing despite the fact that the winter has set in,” he said.
Asked about the recent statement of Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) threatening India, Singh said there were many elements in Pakistan who were radicalised. He asked Islamabad to rein in such ‘Jehadi’ elements so that they do not “create any hysteria”.
“We look to Pakistan to control these elements and I am sure that these elements will not be allowed to move freely and create any hysteria,” he said.
Asked about pumping of fake Indian currency into the country, the Home Secretary said the quality of fake currency notes suggested that state actors were involved in it.
“We believe that some state actors are working to pump fake currency notes into India. There could be state actors employing non-state actors. We are not taking the name of the state actor, you could understand who is the state actor,” he said.
