He also said that talks and terrorism can never go together.

The Home Minister said India’s intentions are clear to have dialogue with Pakistan, but that should be only on terrorism.

“We stick to commitment between Prime Minister Narendra  Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Ufa to engage in a substantive discussion on terrorism,” he said, adding, “It is to be seen what our neighbour have to say.”

Singh’s remarks came against the backdrop of the upcoming Indo-Pak NSA-level talks appearing to be virtually off with the two countries locked in a confrontation over Kashmiri separatists leading to a blame game.

India made it clear to Pakistan that a meeting between the separatists and Pakistan’s National Security Adviser Sartaj Aziz, who is scheduled to arrive here on Sunday for the talks with his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval, was unacceptable.
