Karachi, Aug 6 (ANI): A United Nations (UN) commission probing the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto intends to meet former President Pervez Musharraf as part of investigations into the case, the Foreign Office (FO) has said.

FO spokesman Abdul Basit told reporters that he was unaware if the UN team had already approached Musharraf.

He said the UN commission would "certainly want to investigate those who were in power at the time of the assassination".

Replying to a question, he said" "It would not be necessary for the commission to contact the government ... they can directly approach the former president, who is currently in London."

Basit added that if the investigators contacted the government, the administration would fully cooperate with the UN team.

Replying to a question about the resumption of the Indo-Pak talks, the spokesman reiterated the country's stance that Islamabad wanted to resume the composite dialogue process, "because no dispute can be resolved without dialogue".

He said the foreign ministers of both countries were likely to meet in New York in September, and before that, a meeting between foreign secretaries would be held soon. (ANI)
