OMAN (Agencies) - Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani Tuesday asked India not to hold the dialogue process hostage to the Nov 2008 Mumbai attacks. There is no communication gap with India on resolving core issue of Kashmir and other outstanding issues. This impression should be dispelled that there is lack of communication. However, there is lack of trust, PM Gilani told reporters here. He said Pakistan wanted resumption of dialogue process with India to resolve all outstanding issues. He said resolution of Kashmir issue was vital for regional stability, adding that Pakistan wished to discuss all core issues including Kashmir, and India too had agreed upon it. About presence of terrorist groups along the Pak-Afghan border, he said both the countries had realised that they were victims of a common enemy. We should combat terrorism with a joint strategy. The Nato forces and the Isaf are working in consultation with Pakistan and Afghanistan to jointly combat terrorism. He said the government was following the 3Ds policy of dialogue, development and deterrence and was moving in the right direction to curb terrorism. Gilani said his visit to Oman would reinvigorate the bilateral relations in further expanding economic and trade cooperation between the two countries. While deliberating on the key economic areas discussed with Omani leadership, he said a whole gamut of economic cooperation was discussed during his meeting with Sultan Qaboos and the deputy prime minister. He said it was agreed that the two countries would maintain cooperation in diverse areas including textiles, fishing, education and development in Gwadar. He said his interaction with Minister for External Liaison gave the opportunity to agree on multi-dimensional cooperation in defence and maritime sectors. He said the two sides also agreed to work out feasibility on running a ferry service between Gwadar and Muscat. He said Pakistan and Oman had excellent defence cooperation and efforts were on to materialise an agreement on it. About his meeting with Sultan Qaboos, the Prime Minister said he specifically discussed terrorism and extremism and the role being played by Pakistan as a frontline state in fighting this menace and the sacrifices of its armed forces and civilians. He said the deputy prime minister also agreed to have a regional approach towards terrorism as the issue had no boundaries and should be dealt jointly. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Gilani sought increased Omani investment for Pakistans energy, telecom and agro-based industries, besides urging support for an early finalisation of an FTA with the six-member Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). The two sides discussed Pakistan-Oman bilateral relations, economic cooperation, trade, commerce and investment during the meeting which was attended by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Minister for Ports and Shipping Babar Khan Ghauri, Minister of State for Ports and Shipping Nabil Gabol, Chief Minister Balochistan Nawab Mohammed Aslam Khan Raisani, Pakistans Ambassador to Oman Sohail Amin and Ambassador of Oman to Pakistan Mohammad Al-Lawati. Premier Gilani during his talks with Deputy Prime Minister for Cabinet Affairs Fahd bin Mahmud Al Said said his country valued its relations with Oman and wished to diversify trade ties covering all areas.
