Pakistan stresses world body use of dialogue to end terrorism.

NEW YORK -- At the United Nations, Pakistan has underscored the importance of dialogue as part of efforts to eliminate terrorism. Pakistan Ambassador Masood Khan at the United Nations said this while talking to a panel of the UN Alliance of Civilization Group. He told the group about the Pakistan's strategy to combat the scourge. He said talks and terrorism do not go hand-in-hand together. The envoy said Pakistani government has started a peace dialogue to eliminate terrorism as it is a constitutional obligation of the administration to relieve people of fear and provide them security.

Masood Khan pointed out that Pakistan has always called for a comprehensive approach to eliminate terrorism comprising deterrence, development and dialogue. Masood Khan said criminality cannot be legitimized in the name of religion or ideology. He said: "it is therefore our collective responsibility to delegitimize the skewed and vicious narratives of terrorists and plan our collective efforts to work for peace and harmony within communities and among nations."
