LONDON - Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said that sporadic firing incidents on Pak-India border could not affect the ongoing bilateral talks between the two countries. He said that Pakistan has a clear stance that all conflicting issues between neighbouring states should be resolved peaceful through diplomatic efforts. The Prime Minister was talking to newsmen at the Manchester Airport on way to home after winding up his official visit to the United States Rejecting Afghan and Indian allegations, he said that ISI is a disciplined organisation and a national asset responsible for the security of the country. He added that in the past had been trading such allegations with respect to their intelligence agencies. Toa question on the current situation in Balochistan, PM Gilani dismissed the allegations of Balochistan National Party that a military operation was being conducted in the province, saying that only civilian law-enforcement agencies were taking action against miscreants there. "Our government wants continuity of democracy in the country and does not believe in the politics of revenge and the release of Sardar Akhtar Mengal is a clear proof our conciliatory policy," he asserted. To another query, Yousuf Raza Gilani said that the US has assured him its full cooperation in trade and other sectors of vital importance besides extending support for strengthening democratic institutions in Pakistan. "Despite continual ups and downs in the bilateral ties of the United States and Pakistan, both countries are symbiotically connected with each other through good relations. Pakistan wants to maintain mutually beneficial partnership with America," he added. Responding to a question on the killings of Pakistani security officials in attacks from NATO forces, the Prime Minister said that he did not raise this issue in his meetings with the US official in Washington. He, however, added that in meetings with him, President Bush and Democratic Presidential hopeful, Barack Obama, assured that America would respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Pakistan. Replying to a query, he said that government would succeed in developing a consensus with all coalition partners on this issue.
