ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s civil and military leadership sought on Wednesday a ‘meaningful and sustainable comprehensive’ dialogue process with India to resolve all outstanding issues that have bedeviled the relationship between the two nuclear armed neighbours since 1947.

This came in a meeting of the high-powered National Command Authority (NCA), the apex body that controls Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif chaired the meeting where attendees included ministers for defence, foreign affairs, finance and interior, as well as three services chiefs and other senior officials.
