We Were And We Are Ready For Talks, Replies India To Pakistan’s Accusation

Updated on 5 July, 2016 at 10:04 am By

While Pakistan has accused India of avoiding dialogue, India, however, said that it isn’t shying away from talks and they are prepared to discuss all issues with Islamabad.

“India has never shied away from engagement with Pakistan and is prepared to discuss all outstanding issues with Pakistan bilaterally in an atmosphere free from terror and violence,” Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup said in a weekly media briefing.

Swarup further gave evidences that India repeatedly took initiatives to engage Pakistan.

He said, “It was Modi who first invited Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to his swearing-in ceremony on May 26, 2014. Thereafter, it was again External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj who travelled to Pakistan in December 2015 and held a bilateral meeting.”

Meanwhile, Prime Minister’s Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said that the strengthening US-India relations were not a matter of concern for them.



In an interview, he said, “I think US has itself emphasized number of times that our relations with India are not at the cost of Pakistan; both are important for us. We are one of the largest Islamic, democratic country, and we have a role vis a vis Afghanistan and in this region.”

 

However, he added that their co-operation with India should not increase the gap, the strategic and conventional military gap, between India and Pakistan.
