Lahore, Jul 26: Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that dialogue will not take place if New Delhi does not pay importance to the Kashmir issue.
“It will be impossible for Pakistan to continue the dialogue if India does not pay importance to the Kashmir issue," Qureshi told reporters at the airport on Saturday Jul 24.
His remark came a week after his July 15 meet with Indian counterpart S M Krishna in Islamabad in which differences arose between the two sides on the time-frame and road map for future talks.
The proposed Pakistan-Afghanistan transit trade agreement, described it as a significant achievement, but ruled out any link with India to send its goods to Afghanistan via Pakistan.
The Pakistani Foreign Minister also denied assertions by US leaders and officials that the top al-Qaeda and Afghan Taliban leadership, including Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar, are present in Pakistan.
He said that such reports are rubbish,“Pakistan wants concrete evidence proving the whereabouts of either Osama or Mullah Omar."
