India and Pakistan are likely to start their stalled composite dialogue through backdoor channel diplomacy to resolve outstanding issues, according to a report on Sunday.

The government is considering to assign responsibilities of backdoor diplomacy to former foreign secretary Riaz Mohammad Khan, the Online news agency reported citing reliable sources in the Pakistani foreign ministry.

According to the sources, while Mr. Khan’s name for this task has not been made final, he is considered the best diplomat to handle issues related to India after the death of former foreign secretary Niaz A. Naik, the report said.
