ISLAMABAD - Pakistan on Thursday said the political engagement was essential part of its policy but talks would be held with only those militants who renounced violence and did not use its soil for subversive acts against any other state. Addressing his weekly press briefing here, the Foreign Office Spokesman, Muhammad Sadiq, said that military action was not the only way to wipe out terrorism. However, he also ruled out the possibility of dropping the option of military action against those militants who refused to shun the path of violence.   He said, "The security requirements will not be abandoned or ignored. Negotiations with tribal leaders and notables are aimed at supplementing military efforts with political ones." He said, "Political engagement is an essential part of our policy but it is possible only with those who renounce militancy and violence, do not allow the use of Pakistan's territory against any other country and do not help foreign terrorist elements to find hideouts in our territory." When asked about the construction of dams by India, Sadiq said Pakistan had been pursuing the policy of "energy security" adding that Indus Basin Treaty was very helpful in solving any such problem. Answering another query on sending proposal to UN for probing assassination of Benazir Bhutto, the spokesperson said that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was finalizing the modalities on the basis of resolution passed unanimously by the National Assembly in this regard. Answering a question regarding Iran-Pakistan-India (IPI) gas pipeline project, he said IPI was moving towards the final stage of its implementation. Earlier, he said that Pakistan was in contact with the Spanish authorities on its nine nationals arrested for allegedly planning terrorist attacks in Spain and other European states. He said, "Pakistan mission in Madrid has pursued the matter with the host government. The Spanish government has allowed consular access to the detainees by our mission." It may be added that Spanish police in Barcelona arrested twelve Pakistanis on January 18, 2008 on the suspicion of planning attacks. Sadiq said, "Apparently, the detainees belonged to the Tablighi Jamaat and some of them had been living in the country for many years. They were reported to be illegal migrants." He said the detainees, who are being kept in three different jails, were accessed by Pakistan's consular officials and Pakistani embassy in Spain also requested the Spanish authorities to allow the families of the detainees to establish contact with them. Answering a query, he said Pakistan was committed to the resolution of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with UN resolutions and wishes of the Kashmiri people. He said, we are concerned over death of another Pakistani Muhammad Akram in Indian custody. Akram, who was an under trial prisoner at Central Jail Amritsar, died in Guru Nanak Dev Hospital on 26th of April this year. He said Pakistan's mission in New Delhi had asked India for details of the circumstances that led to the death of Akram and had also sought the early repatriation of his dead body. "Foreign Office is also in contact with the Indian High Commission on the issue," he added. Sadiq said Pakistan had still not been able to acquire any land for opening its Consulate in Mumbai. "A team of officials from Pakistan High Commission in Delhi will visit Mumbai shortly to look at certain properties available for rent or purchase," he added. He, however, said Pakistan had not dropped its request to the Indian government to allow the opening of its Consulate in Jinnah House, Mumbai. Responding to a question, he said according to the Tripartite Agreement between Pakistan, Afghanistan and UNHCR, all Afghan refugees would return to their homeland by the end of next year. When asked to comment on reports about appointment of a controversial American military official at the US Embassy in Islamabad, he said the official was not in Pakistan. However, he added that the government understood the sensitivity and public interest in his appointment and it hoped that the matter would be resolved amicably.
