NEW DELHI: Pakistan’s High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit complained on Friday that India was not willing to resume dialogue process with Pakistan for resolving bilateral issues between the neighbouring countries after India dismissed possibilities of talks with Pakistan’s Foreign Affairs Adviser to PM Nawaz Sartaj Aziz who would be visiting India for the Heart of Asia conference this weekend.
“Talks cannot happen in a climate of continued terrorism. India will never accept continued terrorism as the new normal of the bilateral relationship,” Swarup had said on Thursday.
In an interview with The Hindu, Basit clarified that “Pakistan is not begging for dialogue. If India is not ready, we can always wait.”
