New Delhi - India on Saturday rebuffed a reported offer of talks by Pakistan on the Kashmir dispute saying it would welcome a dialogue with Pakistan on “contemporary and relevant issues in India-Pakistan relations”, including cross-border terrorism, reported Indian media.

Indian foreign ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup said the “contemporary and relevant issues” in current context included “a stoppage of Pakistani support for cross-border terrorism, infiltration of terrorists like Bahadur Ali, incitement to violence and terrorism across the border, parading of internationally recognised terrorists like Hafiz Saeed and Syed Salahuddin, and sincere follow-up on the Mumbai attack trial and the Pathankot attack investigation in Pakistan”.

The comments were in response to reported remarks by Sartaj Aziz, the adviser on foreign affairs to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Aziz had said that Pakistan planned to invite India for a dialogue on the Kashmir dispute.
