Amid on-going war of words between India and Pakistan, Pakistan High Commissioner to India, Abdul Basit on Saturday said that Pakistan is ready to discuss the Kashmir dispute with its Indian counterpart.

Addressing the media in New Delhi, Abdul Basit said, “You all know that we took a step towards having dialogue but that didn’t work out. We did send invite to India but that did not move forward. We do feel talks on Kashmir are needed.”

The Pakistani official also hit back at India over its claims that Pakistan must extradite fugitive underworld don Dawood Ibrahim who is believed to be hiding in Pakistan.

Reacting to Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson, Vikas Swarup’s statements, Basit said, “Ye baat purani ho gayee hai (This is an old issue)”.
