Pak won’t accept preconditions to resume talks with India: Spokesman

The Pakistani Foreign Ministry has said that while it is ready to resume a composite dialogue with India, it won’t accept any preconditions set by New Delhi for the process.

Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit said in an interview to a private TV channel that Islamabad could also set a number of preconditions for starting the dialogue, but “it believes in settlement of bilateral issues with India through a positive negotiation process”.

“The ball is in India’s court. We are ready for a proper process of composite dialogue,” the ‘Daily Times’ quoted Basit, as saying. He added that Pakistan shared India’s desire to resume dialogue.

Basit said that resuming a dialogue was not only in the interest of India and Pakistan, but also in the interest of South Asia. Islamabad and New Delhi should cooperate to resolve the terrorism issue, he added.
