Sonia Gandhi Backs Manmohan Singh On India-Pakistan Statement
Sonia Gandhi & Manmohan Singh
Providing a strong support to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's declaration that there was no dilution of the national sovereignty on countering terrorism stemming from Pakistan, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi said that India's foreign policy with respect to its neighbour had not changed.
"No one should be in any doubt on our party's position vis-a-vis Pakistan. It remains unchanged," Gandhi said at a Congress parliamentary party meeting.
"We support the resumption of the dialogue process with Pakistan, but only after it has demonstrated its seriousness to bring the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attacks to justice and to prevent its territory from being used to launch terror attacks on any part of our country."
She has also pointed out these were vital for restoring the confidence and building an environment conducive to any meaningful dialogue.
