Pakistan ready to negotiate with India from position of strength: Pak HC Abdul Basit
“After we fought wars with India we want a resolution of issues through dialogue. If we’re ready for dialogue, it is our strength, not weakness,” the high commissioner said in an interview with BBC.
“The basic thing is that dialogue should be a comprehensive one, including all issues,” he said.
On Indian External Minister Sushma Swaraj’s statement that dialogue and terrorism cannot go side by side, the high commissioner said that Pakistan could also put up similar conditions such as the situation in Jammu and Kashmir and withdrawal of troops from Siachen.
“Negotiations are the need of South Asia and the entire world. We waited for it earlier and would continue to do so,” he said.
To a question on Hafiz Muhammad Saeed and Maulana Azhar, the high commissioner said the cases were in the courts, adding that Pakistan was ready to take action subject to a provision of tangible proofs.
