Dialogue not possible without K: Pak NSA
A day ahead of the Indo-Pak security talks, Pakistan’s National Security Adviser Sartaj Aziz today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants to dictate terms for dialogue with Islamabad, which will never accept any parleys without Kashmir being on the agenda.
“Modi contested elections on an anti-Pakistan platform and now wants to dictate terms for a dialogue with Pakistan but we will never accept this and we have already conveyed it to New Delhi,” Aziz was quoted as saying by Dawn News.
He asserted that a “befitting reply” would be given to any “Indian misadventure”. Aziz had last month said the NSA talks were cancelled following India’s inflexibility as it refused to discuss Kashmir.
“No dialogue with India can be successful without the Kashmir issue being part of the agenda,” Aziz said. He rejected Indian allegations about the presence of Dawood Ibrahim in Pakistan and alleged the Prime Minister Modi-led government's policy was anti-Pakistan from the beginning.
Aziz’s remarks came a day before Director General-level talks between Pakistan Rangers and Border Security Force in Delhi. — PTI
