Pakistan told talks and terror can’t go together: Sushma

New Delhi, Dec 16 (IANS) External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday reiterated India’s position on talks with Pakistan on all issues of mutual concern and said that “talk and terror can’t go together”.

Responding to a question in the Lok Sabha, the minister said it was made clear to Pakistan long ago that talks and terror can’t actually be possible as far as dialogue between the countries is concerned.

“Since it has been made clear, we have decided to talk on terror,” she told the house.

On whether India had raised with Pakistan the issue of terror camps operating from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), the minister said that all issues related to terrorism were being discussed with the neighbouring country.

“India and Pakistan are also talking on terror outfits operating from PoK,” she said, adding that India hopes to solve the terror problem through dialogue.

On Monday, Sushma Swaraj made a statement in both houses of parliament on her December 8-9 Pakistan visit.
