NEW DELHI (AP) — Pakistan’s ambassador to India says his country would like to have a comprehensive dialogue with New Delhi to resolve their outstanding issues and is willing to wait if India isn’t ready.
High-level talks between the neighbors have been suspended since January, when India postponed scheduled meetings on Kashmir and other issues after an attack on an Indian air force base that killed seven soldiers.
Pakistan High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit said Thursday that Pakistan can wait if India isn’t yet ready.
The Jan. 2 attack on the base in the northern Indian town of Pathankot came days after a surprise visit to Pakistan by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi that raised hopes of a thaw in bilateral relations.
India says phone intercepts suggest the gunmen came from Pakistan.
