ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's Prime Minister Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali said yesterday the peace process with India would continue, despite an imminent change in government in the wake of the Bharatiya Janata party's defeat in the election. 

“The peace process shall continue as it is in the interest of the people of both India and Pakistan”, Jamali said here. 

The prime minister said Sonia Gandhi, set to become India's next premier, and other Congress Party leaders had also expressed desire to continue with the peace process. 

He said the Pakistani government had the support of the people and the parliament in carrying forward the peace process and holding a dialogue with India to settle the Jammu and Kashmir dispute. 

The two neighbours are set to begin a composite dialogue at foreign secretaries level towards the end of this month as a sequel to the landmark meeting between President Pervez Musharraf and outgoing Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee last January. – dpa
