Disappointed at India’s arrogant & negative response, says Imran Khan
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday said he was disappointed at India’s arrogant and negative response to his call for resumption of the peace dialogue between the two countries.
“Disappointed at the arrogant and negative response by India to my call for resumption of the peace dialogue,” PM Imran tweeted.
“However, all my life I have come across small men occupying big offices who do not have the vision to see the larger picture,” he added.
On Thursday, Prime Minister Imran Khan wrote a letter to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi and called for a resumption of dialogue between the two countries.
PM Imran had also called for a meeting between the foreign minister of the two countries on the sidelines of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session.
Hours after reports circulated regarding PM Imran’s letter to Modi, Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Raveesh Kumar confirmed that Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Sushma Swaraj would meet on the sidelines of the UNGA on September 27.
On Friday, the Indian MEA spokesperson announced the cancellation of the meeting, citing the alleged killing of three Indian police officers and personnel of the Border Security Force (BSF) in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) as the reason.
Earlier today, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said New Delhi called off the planned meeting between the foreign ministers of India and Pakistan owing to an issue which took place in July.
