Pakistan faces growing global pressure to rein in Islamist groups that carry out attacks in neighbouring India. Pakistan has nothing against such a meeting. "We are ready for talks and we support peace", he said.
The situation became tense after India violated Pakistani airspace last week and claimed to have "struck the biggest training camp of JeM in Balakot" in which "a large number of JeM terrorists were killed".
The Pakistani army also captured IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman from Horra'n village (barely 7 Kms from the LoC) in Bhimber district of PoK after ejecting from his jet which caught fire in a mid-air dogfight with Pakistani fighters.
India had blamed Pakistan for the Pulwama attack that was carried out by a Kashmiri youth and was claimed by Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM), a group that has been proscribed in Pakistan since 2002.
The Indian Air Force Thursday said it was in a high state of preparedness to pro-actively engage any perceived threat from Pakistan, in clear indication that underlying tension between the two countries remained.
"Whether thee actions are cosmetic or credible is yet to be seen", the official said of the current actions, adding that India would be looking for "credible and verifiable actions".

Blues owner Roman Abramovich is set on Champions League qualification next season and that continues to remain in the balance. In extra-time, Dzeko wasted a succession of chances to score the goal that would likely have taken Roma through.
Those arrested so far include JeM head Masood Azhar's brother Abdul Rauf Asghar and son Hammad Azhar. "It is for this reason that another terror attack happened in Jammu", said PM Modi.
"This government will not allow Pakistan's land to be used for any kind of outside terrorism", Imran Khan said while addressing a public rally in southern Pakistan.
"As long as India and Pakistan refuse to deal with their core dispute - the future of Kashmir - they face unpredictable, possibly terrifying, consequences", it said.
This was in reference to comments by opposition leaders including Kapil Sibal and P Chidambaram of the Congress who cited worldwide media reports seeking clarification from the government over the success of the IAF strike in Pakistan.
"Tension is not in the interest of both the countries", he said.
The prime minister asserted that it was important to maintain harmony. PM Imran Khan and his government have handled Modi's warmongering with restraint, displaying humility with grace and maturity.
