Ready to discuss all issues with Swaraj, says Sartaj Aziz

Pokhara: Pakistan Prime Minister's Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on Wednesday said he is willing to discuss all issues, including the Pathankot terror attack, with his Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj in Nepal.

Expressing hope that Pakistani Special Investigation Team (SIT) will be able to visit India soon to carry forward the probe into the attack at the Air Force base in Pathankot in January Mr. Aziz said that, "Don't worry. The main purpose of the meeting, of course, is to handover the invitation for the SAARC Summit. And then anything she wants to discuss, we will discuss."

While talking about the Pathankot attack, he said that Pakistan has been "responding" to it.

"We are responding on that and you know it. We are talking on all subjects," he told reporters in Pokhara as he arrived for the 37th SAARC Council of Ministers Meeting.

Swaraj and Aziz are scheduled to meet on 17 March on the sidelines of the SAARC meeting during which the External Affairs Minister is expected to nudge Pakistan to take action in the aftermath of the air base attack.
