Srinagar: Outgoing Pakistan High Commissioner in India Abdul Basit has revealed that The National Security Advisors of both India and Pakistan have been in touch and have met, at least once in recent weeks, to explore ways to resume the dialogue process.
Basit, in an interview with The Indian Express, Tuesday confirmed that NSAs Ajit Doval and Nasser Khan Janjua have been in touch. “I believe they are in touch with each other. I don’t know if they met. Let us hope this will help both countries to come to the negotiating table,” he said.
Asked if the meeting took place in Moscow on May 24 on the margins of an international security conference, Basit said, “You may like to ask your NSA to confirm.”
He also claimed that Kulbhushan Jadhav, the former Indian Navy officer sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court on the charge of spying, had provided Pakistani authorities a lot of information, enabling them to bust what he called several sleeper cells and local operatives.
