Basit has conditionally offered Indian government to hold talks over outstanding issues to stop firing spree at the Line of Control (LoC) and Working Boundary that has claimed dozens of innocent lives on Pakistani side in the past couple of months.

Pakistani envoy said that the sides have fought wars and now dialogue should be the way forward.

In an interview with a British media outlet, Abdul Basit cleared that Pakistan was desirous of solid and fruit-bearing talks with India to end bloodshed that unprovoked firing by Indian troops cause on the Pakistani side.

He said that Kashmir was occupied around seven decades ago and people of the occupied valley were demanding right to determination ever since but have suppressed, tortured and martyred in response.

Retrieval of troops deployed in Occupied Kashmir and Siachen could formally be a part of demands by Pakistan while case over Mumbai attacks in 1992 was being heard by a court, Abdul Basit said.
