PIPFPD condemns cancellation of Indo-Pak meet, says dialogue only answer to fight terror

The Pakistan-lndia Peoples' Forum for Peace and Democracy (PIPFPD) has expressed its strong disappointment with the Indian government for cancelling the scheduled meeting of India and Pakistani foreign ministers on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly late this month. The meeting was to take place following exchange of letters by the Prime Ministers of the two countries.
PIPFPD in a statement said, dialogue is the only answer to continued mistrust between the two countries. Condemning all acts of violence, including inhuman acts like beheading of soldiers or civilians, it added, one should not forget that dialogue is the only answer to bring about an end to acts of terror.
Calling upon resumption of the dialogue, PIPFPD said, it should not have been cancelled, as it would have provided an opportunity to interact with the new leadership of Pakistan. Insisting that dialogue is necessary as tension is growing between the two countries, it hopes that the meeting of Foreign Ministers of SAARC countries will be held as scheduled, adding, "We need to break the ice and see peace prevail.
