Islamabad| Prime Minister Imran Khan has reacted to the Indian backing off from dialogues. Mr. Khan has termed the Indian response for dialogue as “arrogant and negative”.
Prime Minister Imran Khan earlier today took to twitter to directly respond to the Indian rejection of dialogue. He wrote that,
“Disappointed at the arrogant & negative response by India to my call for resumption of the peace dialogue. However, all my life I have come across small men occupying big offices who do not have the vision to see the larger picture.”
Foreign Minister, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, also showed his disappointment. Talking to media Mr. Qureshi said,
“I am very disappointed to see that India has rejected our sincere efforts for dialogues. We sincerely hoped dialogues to resolves the outstanding issues between Pakistan and India would be in the best interest of the whole region. But unfortunately, India backed off from its commitment for dialogue by making excuses of issuance of stamps and such sorts. The stamps were published in July and India is making it an excuse in September which does not seem reasonable. Any how I believe that it was a golden chance which was not availed by India due to its internal issues.”
Mr. Qureshi also condemned the language used by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs in its statement.
“There is no room for the language used by the MEA. It is against the diplomatic norms and uncalled for. I am disappointed after reading the statement of the MEA.”
