Pakistan looks forward to the resumption of dialogue with India so that people of this region can benefit from economic cooperation, Tasnim Aslam, spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Thursday.

At the weekly media briefing, she said in response to questions that “We have a framework with India which has an eight point agenda. This process has been disrupted for the last three years. We believe that to have sustainable and durable peace, we need to address all the issues and disputes ... ”

To a question on Narendra Modi coming to power in India and whether he will respond positively to Pakistan, Ms. Aslam said she was not in the business of reading minds.

On the position of Pakistan on Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, she said India's constitution was India’s internal matter. “We have a position on Jammu and Kashmir because Pakistan is a recognised and legitimate party to this dispute,” she said.
