Pakistan welcomes Indias readiness for dialogue: FO

The Foreign Office said Pakistan welcomed India’s readiness to resume dialogue, especially on India occupied Kashmir (IoK).
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had recently expressed India’s willingness to discuss all outstanding issues with Pakistan.
Foreign office spokesperson Abdul Basit on Thursday said the Indian prime minister’s statement is a welcome reiteration of the understanding reached at the Sharm-El Sheikh summit between Pakistan and India.
Basit also said the two neighbours cannot allow terrorists and militants to define and drive the agenda on issues of peace, security and stability in South Asia.
He also said that the composite dialogue process offers hopes for a meaningful engagement to address these issues.
