New Delhi, June 4 (ANI): Union Minister for New and Renewable Energy Dr. Farooq Abdullah has asked Pakistan to stop supporting anti-India militant groups if it wants the Indo-Pak dialogue to succeed.

Talking to reporters here on Thursday, Abdullah said: "Controlling terrorist activities by Pakistan would benefit both countries immensely, as militant infiltration is on the rise since the beginning of the year.

"The biggest thing is to stop terrorism first. Only then will any talk with India become successful. Unless terrorism is stopped, all talks will be ineffective," he added.

He also expressed happiness over the resolution of the Baglihar Dam dispute.

"There was a lot of commotion regarding the Baglihar issue which has been resolved now. They have agreed to Uri project (River projects). The other project, which we are making at Kargil, they have accepted that as well. Gradually, things will become better," he said.

Members of India- Pakistan Permanent Indus Water Commission recently held talks on issues relating to the distribution of Indus waters, as Pakistan had earlier raised objections to India's Baglihar and other water storage projects. (ANI)
