External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today did not rule out the possibility of India and Pakistan resuming their talks called off by New Delhi recently and Prime Minister Narendra Modi meeting his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in New York this month.

“There is no full stop in diplomacy,” Ms Swaraj said, when asked about the future of Indo-Pak talks, which were cancelled in Islamabad on August 25, in the wake of India taking a firm stand against Pakistan entertaining Kashmiri separatist leaders.

When asked, whether Mr Modi would be meeting Mr Sharif in New York on the margins of the UNGA session, since there have been some positive gestures from both sides after the bitterness created over the Foreign Secretary level talks, the Minister said she could not say anything in advance and she would respond “as things develop”.

She, however, said “We are not going with a predetermined mindset”.

Ms Swaraj, at the same time, strongly reiterated the Indian stand over Pakistan involving Kashmiri separatist leaders in the bilateral issues.

Ms Swaraj, while replying to a question, at her first media briefing on the completion of 100 days of the government, said there was no flaw in the new Government’s stand on Pakistan.
