We warmly welcome the on-going dialogue between India and Pakistan on nuclear confidence-building measures as part of the composite dialogue process. We hope that both countries will work together to implement swiftly confidence-building measures, e.g pre-notification of missile tests, following their recent meeting on 14–15 December. We continue to discuss issues relating to nuclear non-proliferation with the governments of both countries.
