India on Tuesday said the doors for talks with Pakistan were never shut but remained non-committal on resumption of dialogue with it amid reports of Home Minister P Chidambaram's likely visit to Islamabad.
"On talks with Pakistan, the doors were never shut," External Affairs Minister S M Krishna told reporters when asked whether the composite dialogue process with Pakistan was set to resume.
He made it clear that even in the previous dialogue with Pakistan, the focus had always been on terror and terror instrumentalities that exist there and had to be dismantled.
"Well, the focus has always been on terror and terror infrastructure in Pakistan. The terror infrastructure in Pakistan has been the focal point of dialogue with Pakistan and will continue to be the focal point," was Krishna's refrain when asked whether the home minister was scheduled to visit Islamabad.
