On India’s demand for handing over of Saeed, he said Pakistan’s stand was very clear “on these issues, on counter-terrorism and other problems.”
“There is only one way — the first thing is that the two sides had agreed in Sharm-el-Sheikh that terrorism is a common problem. That is, the threat of terrorism is both to India and Pakistan as it is to other countries of the world,” Mr. Bashir said.
“In my view, there is great clarity that bracketing these specific issues with the talks is counter-productive.”
Responding to a question on India’s alleged interference in Balochistan and whether he would raise it during the meeting, Mr. Bashir said all this is part of counter-terrorism and if that issue is raised Pakistan will discuss this matter.
