No Pak response yet on Mumbai dossier: India
February 05, 2009 15:10 IST
India on Thursday maintained that it had not yet received any response on the dossier given to Pakistan on the Mumbai attacks.
"There is no confusion. Both External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee [Images] and I have said that we have not received any response to the dossier given to Pakistan as yet," Union Home Minister P Chidambaram [Images] told media persons.
He was responding to a question whether there was any confusion in the government in the backdrop of National Security Advisor M K Narayanan's statement that Pakistan had reverted to India with a number of questions on the Indian dossier on the Mumbai [Images] terror attack. Narayanan's statement had contradicted the stand taken by Mukherjee.
To another question on his earlier statement on the possibility of India snapping ties with Pakistan, Chidambaram said he was misquoted.
"What I had said was that there are many, many ties between India and Pakistan. If Pakistan does not respond (to the dossier), these may get weaker and weaker and may one day snap. It is a thought process and not a policy statement," he clarified.
