Pakistan is committed to dialogue with India and would not allow the “process” to be distracted in any way, Pakistan high commissioner Abdul Basit said on Wednesday.
“I would like to underline that Pakistan stands by its commitment and vision articulated by our Prime Ministers. It is time for India and Pakistan to work in cooperation and not confrontation,” Basit said at a press conference at the national capital.

India on Monday called off foreign secretary level talks with Pakistan after Basit held meetings with separatist leaders from Kashmir.
Basit said: “We would not allow this process to be distracted in any way. Pakistan is seriously committed to this process. If Pakistan and India work together, if Saarc is vitalised, I can assure you that sky is the limit,” he said, adding: “Pakistan and I are confident that India will spare no effort to make this process mutually beneficial,” he added.
