The Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist), now in session at New Delhi, has issued the following statement:
The Central Committee of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) reiterates its consistent position that the process of talks between India and Pakistan should continue, while adopting a firm stance on the territorial sovereignty of our country.
The current tensions along the Indo-Pak borders must be deescalated. For this, the process of dialogue and talks must continue, regardless of whether the Pakistan embassy officials have meetings with separatist leaders of Kashmir or not. Such meetings have been regularly taking place in the past.
