Positive response from Vajpayee: Pak

May 05, 2003 16:43 IST

Pakistan on Monday said it has received a positive response to its invitation to Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and asserted that it is ready for a composite dialogue with India, including on Kashmir.

"We have received a response and it is a positive response," Foreign Office spokesman Aziz Ahmed Khan told reporters in Islamabad declining to give details of Vajpayee's reply to the invitation extended by Pakistan Premier Mir Zaffarullah Khan Jamali last Saturday to visit Pakistan.

Vajpayee's response "calls for a dialogue process. We will look at the letter and then we will move from there," he said.
