Islamabad, Apr 2 (ANI): Pakistan today asked India to continue the composite dialogue process, which was stalled in the wake of the Mumbai terror attacks.

Addressing a weekly briefing here, Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit emphasised the need that efforts should be made for the resumption of composite dialogue process, as it is the only way forward to resolve the bilateral issues, instead of giving statements in the media.

“It will be better to resume the dialogue process (between Pakistan and India) as it will be better for the region and for the progress and prosperity of the people,” said the spokesman.

Basit said presently Pakistan is looking into and analyzing the response from India regarding the questions asked in connection with the Mumbai attacks and after the completion of the process, results would be shared with India.

He said both the countries, Pakistan and India, should utilise the mechanism in place to counter terrorism with mutual cooperation of the two countries, The News reported.

The spokesman said blame game could not resolve the issues; therefore, both Pakistan and India should resume composite dialogue process to resolve the issues. (ANI)
