"However, other aspects of the relationships have also been discussed. I have made statements and so has my Pakistani counterpart. So this should give you clarity that the dialogue process has not been suspended," he added.
On being reminded that Pakistan has expressed its willingness to host an Indian investigative team in the case, Swarup said it will be considered "at an appropriate time". He also said that India welcomes any move against terrorism. "We welcome cooperation to combat terrorism in all its forms." The talks at foreign secretary-level between India and Pakistan, planned for mid-January, got derailed after January 2 terror attack on the the Indian Air Force base in Pathankot.
