Pakistan Foreign Affairs and National Security Advisor Sartaj Aziz said on Tuesday that talks with India would be possible only when the issue of Kashmir is included on the agenda.
Sartaj Aziz told reporters in Islamabad that there was no use of dialogue with India until all matters including Kashmir came into discussion.
He was responding to a question about a statement made by Indian Information Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore who said his government would explore every possible means, including carrying out a covert or a special operation, to neutralise Dawood Ibrahim or Hafiz Saeed.
Pakistani troops have violated the ceasefire eight times in September this year ahead of Director General-level talks between the border guarding forces of India and Pakistan from September 9.
A civilian was killed and four others were injured on Monday in Pakistani shelling along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district. India will also raise the lack of response from the Pakistan Rangers when BSF personnel wave a white flag, indicating that firing should stop and the on-ground commanders should meet.
Gen Sharief, as mentioned in Dawn, said, India remains ready to neutralize its enemies, and Kashmir is an unresolved regional issue since the partition of the sub-continent, and peace would never be possible without resolution of Kashmir issue as per United Nations resolutions and the desires of the Kashmiris. Both the countries have agreed on restoration of bilateral trust.
Meanwhile, the most recent breach of ceasefire occurs significantly less than weekly after the cancellation of NSA shares between Pakistan and Indian was to be kept in New Delhi.
