Pakistan has urged India to create a conducive environment to pave the way for settlement of core issues like Jammu and Kashmir.

Speaking in a TV programme, Pakistan's High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit said the two countries need to decide over the fundamental issues like Jammu and Kashmir first before moving to other issues.

The High Commissioner said we need to be sitting across the table to discuss the difficult issues. We cannot expect progress in vacuum.

To a question, Abdul Basit said terrorism issue cannot alone define the entire gamut of bilateral ties between India and Pakistan.
