"Engagement is the key. Dialogues are a necessity. What we need is to have a dialogue process in place to address perceptions and misconceptions," said Abdul Basit.
"We need to see how we can work out a solution which is in sync with aspirations of people of Jammu & Kashmir. Whatever the 2 countries decide, if it doesn't find resonance with the people of J&K it's useless," said Basit.
Basit has always stressed for Indo-Pak dialogues.
Earlier in June, the high commissioner said the issues between the two countries could only be resolved through talks.
