Islamabad: Sartaj Aziz, the Pakistan prime minister’s advisor on National Security and Foreign Affairs, has said Islamabad will not resume dialogue with New Delhi unless all bilateral issues were placed on the agenda.
“Security advisor-level talks between India and Pakistan could not be held due to India’s pre-conditions,” Radio Pakistan cited him as saying in an interview.
Aziz said the meeting between Director General of Pakistan Rangers and commanders of Indian Border Security Force (BSF) is scheduled for the next week despite tension on the Line of Control and the International Boundary.
US National Security Advisor Susan Rice was also informed about the Pakistan stance on the prevailing tension with India, he said.
During talks with the Pakistani leaders, Rice — who was in Islamabad on a daylong official visit on Sunday — made it clear that the US supported the dialogue between India and Pakistan for peace and stability in the region.
