NEW DELHI: Abdul Basit, Pakistani High Commissioner to India, Thursday said the bilateral dialogue between Islamabad and New Delhi has been suspended.


“There is no meeting scheduled as of now. I think at present the peace process is suspended,” Basit told mediamen at a function in New Delhi.

Basit said that Indian spy agency RAW officer arrested in Balochistan province proved that India is involved in creating unrest and destabilizing Pakistan.

“The recent arrest of Kulbhushan Yadav in Pakistan irrefutably corroborates what Pakistan has been saying all along,” he said.

“We all are aware of those who seek to create unrest in Pakistan and destabilise the country… They are bound to fail as the people of Pakistan are united to effectively counter anti-Pakistan subversive activities,” Basit said.

Speaking about the Kashmir dispute between the both countries, the Pakistani High Commissioner said: “It is the Jammu and Kashmir dispute that is the root cause of mutual distrust (between India and Pakistan) and other bilateral issues,” he said.
