Islamabad: Claiming that there was no communication gap between India and Pakistan over Kashmir and other issues, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani today said that the bilateral dialogue process should not be held hostage to the Mumbai incident.
“Impression should be dispelled that there is lack of communication (between Pakistan and India),” Gilani said, but acknowledged there was a “lack of trust” between the two nations.
Gilani made the remarks while interacting with media in the Omani capital of Muscat. The premier is currently on an official visit to Oman to boost trade and economic ties.
Pakistan desires the resumption of the dialogue process with India to resolve all outstanding issues, Gilani said. The peace process should not be held hostage to the 2008 Mumbai incident, he said.
