Pakistan on Monday said the blasts on-board a train carrying passengers to Lahore is the handiwork of those who do not want relations with India to improve.
"In my view there are some people who do not want the relations between the two countries to run on track.... We condemn the blasts," Pakistan Minister of State for Commerce Hamid Yar Hiraj said about the blasts.
The blasts would not have any impact on relations between the two countries and it was time that people of both countries should sit down to ensure that the situation does not deteriorate, he said after meeting Commerce and Industry Minister Kamal Nath.
