Terming his first meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh as "productive", Pakistani Premier Nawaz Sharif on Monday said dialogue between the two countries is the only way forward in normalising ties.
"Dialogue is the only way forward in normalising situation between the two neighbourly countries," Sharif said on his arrival at the Heathrow airport in London on his return from the US, after attending the UN General Assembly.
Sharif met with his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh in New York on Sunday on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, had said his government wanted strong relations with India and all issues including 'flash point' Kashmir should be talked through.
He also had said that both countries have been spending heavily on defense which should have ordinarily been spent on social sectors.
Sharif termed his meeting with Singh as 'productive' and said all important issues, including Kashmir and Sir Creek, were discussed, state-run Radio Pakistan reported.
"Sharif said during the meeting, he also pointed out the Indian interference in Balochistan," it added.
