At his weekly press briefing, FO spokesperson Qazi Khaliullah said a meeting between DG Rangers and DG BSF will take place in New Delhi next month to discuss ceasefire violations at the LoC and the Working Boundary.
To a question, he said it is for India to indicate its position regarding the talks. “As far as Pakistan is concerned, we had very clearly stated that preconditions for talks were not acceptable.”
Answering another query regarding Dawood Ibrahim, he informed that “Our consistent position on Dawood Ibrahim has been that he is not in Pakistan. In this regard, I would like to draw your attention to a statement by Indian Minister of State for Home Affairs given in the Parliament a few months ago that whereabouts of Dawood Ibrahim were not known. His statement vindicated our position,” he concluded.
