Stating that the ties between India and Pakistan went into a low after the Mumbai terror attacks, President Asif Ali Zardari has said the resumption of dialogue between the two countries was in the interest of peace in the region.

"The resumption of dialogue is in the interest of peace in the region," he said in an interview to the Financial Times.

"Pakistan has reiterated the importance of sustained and constructive engagement to the Indian side to defuse tensions and address each other's concerns through dialogue," Zardari said.

He claimed his government had extended full co-operation to India in the investigations into Mumbai terror attacks.

"We have welcomed the election in India and the formation of new government in that country," he said, and hoped the new government will carry on with the peace process.
