New Delhi (Online) - Faced with strident attack from opposition over the Pak-India joint statement, Congress government on Friday said progress in dialogue with Pakistan was not possible in an atmosphere vitiated by violence or the threat to use violence and claimed it was encapsulated in the document. Speaking during a debate on the working of his Ministry in the Rajya Sabha (Upper House of the Parliament), External Affairs Minister SM Krishna said India cannot and will not be oblivious to the continued threat of terrorism emanating from Islamabad. Progress is not possible in our dialogue with Pakistan in an atmosphere vitiated by violence or the threat to use violence. He said, The Joint Statement of July 16 encapsulates this view and standpoint that any meaningful dialogue with Pakistan can only follow the concrete fulfilment of their commitments not to allow their territory to be used for terrorist activities against India. His response came after Leader of Opposition Arun Jaitley said the government at Sharm-el Sheikh had committed a monumental lapse and the praise for Atal Bihari Vajpayee could not shield it from the act. Rejecting the BJP charge that the government has removed the pressure on Pakistan to act against terrorists, Krishna said PM Singh and he had left the Pakistani leadership in no doubt that they must act against perpetrators of Mumbai and other terror attacks against India.
