Taking a stern stand against India following surgical strikes, Pakistan said that there can be no breakthrough dialogue during PM Modi tenure. 

Pakistan’s Foreign Affairs Adviser Sartaj Aziz, in an interview to a TV channel, said,”Pakistan had been resisting India’s hegemonistic attitude in the region and calling for the promotion of bilateral ties on an equal basis. However, there can’t be any breakthrough in ties with India during the tenure of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.”

Further, Aziz claimed that India is diverting the attention of the world from the Kashmir issue by ‘Uri-like self-staged incidents’.

Recently, Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United Nations Maleeha Lodhi told the world body that non-implementation of the Kashmir resolutions is the most persistent failure of the UN.
“This is the most persistent failure of the United Nation. Jammu and Kashmir never was and can never be an integral part of India. It is disputed territory, the final status of which has yet to be determined in accordance with several resolutions of the UN Security Council,” she said.

Reacting to India’s announcement that Indo-Pak border would be sealed by 2018, Aziz said there is no problem with that till the time trade and movement of people isn’t affected.

He added that Pakistan’s  parliament had unanimously adopted a resolution that encompassed all issues including the condemnation of brutalities in Kashmir, ceasefire violations at Line of Control by India, negation of Indian view of Kashmir as its integral part, condemnation of Indian threat to revoke Indus Waters Treaty and Indian intervention in Balochistan.
