New Delhi: The peace process between India and Pakistan has been “suspended” and there are no talks scheduled between the two countries, Pakistan high commissioner Abdul Basit said here on Thursday.

“There is no meeting scheduled as of now. I think at present the peace process is suspended,” Basit told reporters at a function here.

He was speaking in the background of the January 2 Pathankot terror attack by Pakistani terrorists of the Jaish-e-Mohamed, which killed seven security personnel.

The attack has stalled the resumption of dialogue between the two sides.

Evading a direct comment on the possibility of NIA team visiting Pakistan for Pathankot terror probe, Abdul Basit said, “It is not about reciprocity but co-operation of our two countries.”

On India’s request for consular access to Kulbhushan Yadav, the alleged spy arrested by Islamabad, Basit said, “The request is under consideration, but can’t say when they would be given consular access.”
