He said, "You all know that we took a step towards having dialogue but that didn't work out. We did send invite to India but that did not move forward. We do feel talks on Kashmir needed."

On August 14, Basit had said that his country's Independence Day year is dedicated to Kashmir and vowed to continue the "fight" till the Valley "attains freedom".

"We dedicate this year's Independence Day to the struggle of Jammu and Kashmir. Our struggle will continue till J&K gets freedom," Basit said during celebrations to mark Pakistan's Independence Day in Delhi.
