India willing to proceed with dialogue with Pakistan

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

New Delhi, April 3, IRNA -- After the ice-breaking February 25 Foreign Secretary-level talks, India has conveyed to Pakistan its willingness to have the second round of parleys but is yet to get any response.

India also has not heard anything from Pakistan on the three dossiers given to it containing names of 34 terrorists wanted here, including LeT chief Hafiz Saeed, with a demand for handing them over and other effective actions.

India has told Pakistan that the second round of talks can be held but they have to "come back to us", PTI said quoting sources.

The February 25 talks held in Delhi were an ice-breaker after the 26/11 attacks when the dialogue process was put on hold by India as terrorists from Pakistan were responsible for the strike.

The initiative for those talks was taken by India and were intended to discuss terrorism, which India says is the "core issue".
