Pakistan on Friday stopped short of categorically denying its involvement in some kind of back channel talks with India though Islamabad has been insisting publicly that New Delhi should create an “enabling environment” for “meaningful dialogue”.
Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry at the weekly press briefing was asked by several journalists about reported back channel talks with India.
Chaudhry said, states have their ways and means to communicate which remain available even during wars. Therefore, whether any talks are taking place between India and Pakistan is not important. He added that the real issue was what should be discussed between the two countries and how the dialogue could be made meaningful and result-oriented dialogue.
