Continue talks but ensure security: Congress

Even as it called upon the government to ensure there is no breach of national security, the Congress on Sunday said engagement with Pakistan could continue despite the “grave provocation” at Pathankot.

Party spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi however, left it to the government to decide the level, nature and intensity of engagement. “We have said that despite this grave provocation, engagement with Pakistan need not be disrupted,” PTI quoted Mr. Singhvi as saying.

He also said the government has not shared any information with the opposition regarding the Pathankot attack, security situation and the talks with Pakistan. He called upon the government to ensure there was no breach in security on the basis of its “very special domain expertise”.
