Despite provocation, engagement with Pak needs not be disrupted, says Congress

New Delhi: With the Pathankot terrorist attack likely to play spoilsport for the ongoing talk process with Pakistan, the Congress Party on Sunday said India’s engagement with its neighbour needs not be disrupted despite the grave provocation of the attack.

Interacting with reporters here, Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi said, “It is up to the government to decide what should be the level, nature and intensity of engagement with Pakistan.”

He, however, made it clear that the government had not shared any information with the opposition regarding the attack, security situation and the talks with Pakistan.

“The Congress does not stand by the remarks and observations made by individuals, who are not the spokespersons or in the decision making process, that foreign secretary talks should be suspended or cancelled,” he added. (ANI)
