Advisor: (Dialogue with India only after all issues put on agenda: Sartaj Aziz)

ISLAMABAD: Advisor to Prime Minister on National Security and Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz has said that Pakistan will not resume dialogue with India unless all the bilateral issues are put on the agenda.

In an interview to a private TV channel on Monday, he said security advisor level talks between the two countries could not be held in New Delhi last week due to the Indian pre-conditions.

The Advisor informed that the meeting between DG Rangers and commanders of Indian Border Security Force is scheduled for next week despite tension on the Line of Control and Working Boundary.

To a question, Sartaj Aziz said the visit of the US national security advisor Susan Rice is aimed at settling nitty gritties of the forthcoming tour of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to the United States. He said Susan Rice was also informed about the Pakistan stance on the tension with India.

He said the US national security advisor made it clear during talks with the Pakistani leaders that her country supported dialogue between Islamabad and New Delhi for peace and stability in the region.

He said Afghan peace process would be resumed soon after the settlement of the issue of the Taliban leadership. He said Pakistan was concerned on violent incidents in some Afghan areas.
