Indian HC says Pak-India dialogues not dependant on Pathankot attack
NEW DELHI: Indian High Commissioner (HC) Gautam Bambawale has said that the foreign secretary-level talks between Pakistan and India would not be depending upon the attack on Pathankot Airbase.
In a statement issued on Monday, Gautam Bambawale said that he could not give a specific date for upcoming talks but the Indian officials are in touch with their Pakistani counterparts.
It is worth to mention that seven Indian security personnel were killed when terrorists attacked the Pathankot Airbase. Authorities from across the border had swiftly blamed Jaish-e-Muhammad for carrying out the attack.
Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif had agreed to cooperate with India on the attack’s investigation. The Pakistani investigation team stated that no evidence could be found against JeM.
It should be noted that Pakistan and India agreed to resume the dialogue process following Nawaz-Modi meeting in France.
The dialogue process between the two South Asian countries has remained on and off due to the ongoing tensions along the border.
