Talks with Pakistan depend on circumstances, says India

08 February, 2014

NEW DELHI: India on Friday reacted with caution to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's invitation to engage in a comprehensive and sustained dialogue, saying it will depend on circumstances, which have to be considered "thoughtfully", Press Trust of India reported.

"They must have sent an invite which will go to the prime minister. The prime minister will apply his mind. It will all depend on the circumstances which have to be considered thoughtfully," External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid told reporters.

Prime Minister Nawaz had on Wednesday invited India to engage in a "comprehensive, sustained and result-oriented" dialogue with Pakistan to resolve the Kashmir issue. "I invite India for a comprehensive, sustained and result-oriented" dialogue for the resolution of the Kashmir issue, Nawaz had said while addressing a joint session of Azad Kashmir's assembly.

Noting that circumstances had led India to suspend dialogue with Pakistan, Khurshid said, "Circumstances must be befitting to be revived". Though relations have improved "undoubtedly", there is still a lot of work to be done, he said. "I believe my colleague Anand Sharma is going to Pakistan on trade talks. Let me see what happens," Khurshid said.

End.
