'Stop cross-border terrorism and then we can talk': India tells Pak

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

In a stern warning to Pakistan, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) today said that will never accept continued cross-border as the new normal.

"Stop cross-border and then we can talk," said MEA official spokesperson Vikas Swarup, said , adding is in favour of talks but not in this atmosphere of terror.

Swarup further said that has not received any request from for a bilateral meeting.

Commenting on Tuesday's Nagrota terror attack, Swarup said India is awaiting specific details before taking the next step. He added that the government has taken this attack very seriously and will do what it feels is required for security.

A group of heavily-armed terrorists in police uniform stormed an army unit in Nagrota, about three kilometers from the Corps headquarters on the outskirts of Jammu city on Tuesday morning.

Seven army personnel, including two officers, were killed in this attack before three terrorists were killed.

Meanwhile, responding to a poser about the investigation in the Uri attacks earlier in September, Swarup said, "When we are giving you fingerprints, DNA, of the terrorists that we believe have come from Pakistan, why can't match it against its own database. That would be the simplest thing to do."

"If is serious, let it first bring to books responsible for the Mumbai terror attack," he added.
