On the possibility of any Pakistani dignitary visiting India during the upcoming bilateral cricket series, Khurshid said he had not heard of any proposal yet, but added that the Indian cricket board could take an initiative on its own.
"On the other hand, this is an opportunity which they (Pakistan) on their own side may want to partake of an opportunity of coming to India. And if there is a proposal, we will consider it appropriately," Khurshid said.
He also sought to dismiss Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's allegation that the Centre was on the verge of deciding to hand over Sir Creek to Pakistan.
"Narendra Modi must understand that give and take of this sort does not happen in 24 hours. Talks between both countries have been on for sometime. On some issues, a solution is possible and some others need to wait. We have been having a dialogue on Sir Creek too. These are issues of national interest," Khurshid said.
"Mr Modi does not know what has happened in the dialogue, we have not told him unless someone from across the border has told him. I think Mr Modi does not understand what is a dialogue. I think the word dialogue does not exist in his dictionary. He should think before he speaks and not speak only with elections on his mind. He should stop undermining national interest."
