No talks with India unless Kashmir is not on agenda: Aziz
Islamabad: Asserting that it will make “no compromise” on its dignity and honour, Pakistan today said no dialogue process will take place with India unless Kashmir issue is not included in the agenda.
“No dialogue will take place unless Kashmir is on agenda,” Pakistan Prime Minister’s Adviser on National Security and Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said.
Briefing reporters here on the last week’s meeting between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his counterpart Narendra Modi, Aziz said that it was a “good beginning that was focused on reducing tension.”
He said Pakistan stays firms on its principled stance on the issue with dignity and honour and “no compromise” will be made on it.
On LeT operations commander Zaki-ur Rahman Lakhvi’s trial in the Mumbai terror attack case, he said Pakistan needs more information and evidence from India in this regard.
India has been upset over the almost non-existent trial in the 2008 Mumbai attack case, with even the mastermind Lakhvi being released by the court as the Pakistan government failed to furnish the required evidence.
Aziz also said that Prime Minister Sharif sought more information on Samjhauta blast during his meeting with Modi.
Modi and Sharif, in their first bilateral talks in over an year, met for nearly one hour here on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit in Ufa, Russia last week and discussed entire gamut of issues between the two countries.
