ISLAMABAD, Feb. 18 (Xinhua) -- Pakistan has called back its high commissioner to India Sohail Mahmood for consultations after a suicide attack in India-controlled Kashmir, Foreign Ministry spokesman Muhammad Faisal said here in a tweet on Monday.

Confirming the return of the Pakistani high commissioner, sources in the Pakistani Foreign Ministry told Xinhua that the consultations regarding possible actions by the Financial Action Task Force's (FATF), the Paris-based international terror financing watchdog, will also be made.

A recent suicide attack in Indian-controlled Kashmir left 40 people killed. India blamed the attack on Pakistan after an organization proscribed by Pakistan claimed the incident.

Faisal said on Sunday that the Indian allegations were made within a short time from the attack and without carrying out any investigations.

The spokesman said that Pakistan desires normalization of relations with India.

"In his letter to (Indian) Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi, Prime Minister Imran Khan followed his intention of taking two steps if India takes one, with the proposal for both foreign ministers to meet at the sidelines of the UNGA (the United Nations General Assembly) and a comprehensive, tangible roadmap for normalization of ties."
