Sartaj Aziz says Pakistan will only talk to India if Kashmir is on agenda


Pakistan’s National Security Advisor Sartaj Aziz has said that his country will only hold talks with India if the Kashmir issue was on the agenda, reports news agency IANS.

He claimed that international fraternity had ‘supported Pakistan’s stand on Kashmir’ adding that the two countries needed to resolve all outstanding issues including Kashmir ‘through dialogues.’

According to Radio Pakistan, Aziz also accused ‘Modi government’ of pursing anti-Pakistan policy. He rejected India’s claims that the underworld don Dawood Ibrahim had been living in Pakistan’s port city of Karachi adding that a ‘befitting reply’ would soon be given.

Aziz also confirmed that a meeting between Pakistan Rangers’ chief and commander of Indian Border Security Force (BSF) would be held in New Delhi on Wednesday. He said that it was aimed at reducing the tension along the Line of Control.

The Pakistani NSA announced that Pakistan would soon present a dossier on India’s ‘interference in Balochistan.’

Relationship between India and Pakistan has turned hostile after the NSA level talks scheduled for 23 August last month broke down. India insisted holding the talks only to discuss terror, while Pakistan was adamant discussing Kashmir too.
