Former external affairs minister and Congress leader Salman Khurshid on Monday said that Pakistan has no intention of a dialogue over Nawaz Sharif’s Foreign Advisor Sartaj Aziz’s statement that no formal dialogue would take place with India without Kashmir issue on agenda.
“It feels as if Pakistan does want to have clear talks or does not want to go in the right direction with India. Pakistan has no intention of a dialogue, they just want to show the world that they are talking, but India is not giving its support,” Khurshid told ANI here.
“Government should have been alert. The BJP-led government say that they have found all the solutions to the problems,” he added.
Earlier today, addressing the media in Islamabad earlier, Aziz had said that no formal dialogue would take place with India without Kashmir issue on agenda.
A joint media statement released after the meeting between Prime Minister Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Russia on Friday stated that both sides had decided to expedite the 26/11 Mumbai attacks trial, including additional information like providing voice samples.
The joint statement also said that both sides had agreed to hold a meeting in New Delhi between the two National Security Advisors to discuss all issues connected to terrorism.
