ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Saturday said that India was shying away from composite dialogue despite the commitment made by Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as well as his acknowledgement that talks were the only way forward for nuclear South Asian states. If the road forward is dialogue, then what are they (Indians) shying away from? They should come and sit and talk, said the Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi while addressing a press conference here at the Foreign Office. He said that the Indian Prime Minister had committed to a dialogue with Pakistan and he also said that dialogue was the only way forward. He said that both Pakistan and India did not believe that war was an option for resolving issues, as it would be suicidal for them. He added, When war is no longer an option, what other options do you have? A negotiated settlement and dialogue are the way forward. Meanwhile, talking to a news channel, Foreign Minister Qureshi said India was hesitant to resume composite dialogue with Pakistan due to its internal political situation. Giving details of recently concluded ministerial meeting of Friends of Democratic Pakistan (FoDP) at the press conference, he said, There was consensus at the FoDP meetings that besides providing help in war on terror, the focus would also be given on energy and infrastructure development in Pakistan. He said the meeting also unanimously adopted the vision for reconstruction of Swat and Malakand division. The meeting appreciated the success of the military operation in Swat, handling of the IDPs by Pakistan and their ultimate return to their hometowns, he said. He said that he also shared Pakistans concept of public-private partnership under the auspices of the FoDP and the UAE offered to host its first such conference. Answering a question on financial commitments made at the Tokyo donors conference of FoDP nations, Qureshi said those pledges were for a period of two years but in view of the urgency of the situation, Pakistan asked the donors to speed up the release of committed money. Out of the total pledges of 5.28 billion dollars, over $ 400 million would be transferred to Pakistan in the next month while $ 500 million by December this year, he said. He added that the UK, Saudi Arabia and the UAE also committed the early release of the pledged funds. He said that he was not going for begging to different countries for Pakistan but trying his efforts to engage the international community in the development of the country. He said the ministerial meeting of FoDP was held to discuss the development projects prepared by Islamabad for the welfare of the masses and the most important was the Malakand development project. The projects presented in the ministerial meeting were adopted unanimously and Pakistans vision and approach were highly appreciated, he added. He said the FoDP was the concept for political engagement of the friends and to make efforts to get more diplomatic space for Pakistan. The next FoDP summit will be held in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session and it will be co-chaired by President Asif Ali Zardari, US President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, the Foreign Minister said.
