Pakistan Monday strongly rejected India's accusation of Pakistan's "cross border infiltration" and urged New Delhi to dismantle its "infrastructure of state terrorism" in Indian-controlled Kashmir.
Commenting on Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's recent statement that there could be no talks with Pakistan until and unless there is an end to the "cross Line of Control (LoC) infiltration," Pakistan's Foreign Office spokesman Masood Khan said at a weekly news conference that in the past five to six months, India has intensified "the terrorism" against civilians inIndian-controlled Kashmir.
He said Pakistan on its part would continue to stress for the resumption of dialogue with India. He hoped that India would reconsider its rejection of the offer by Pakistan that Kashmiris on both sides should travel under the United Nation's documents and the UN monitored checkpoints.
Commenting on reports from India that Pakistan is delaying resumption of talks on restoration of air links, the spokesman said Pakistan is not delaying talks and the slow pace is due to New Delhi.
