India rejected Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif’s remarks describing Modi’s go to to J&Okay over the weekend as “staged”, questioning what it actually meant. “It appears to point that the go to didn’t happen and we are attempting to point out that it did,” he mentioned.
In response to a different query, Bagchi mentioned there had been no change in India’s place on participating with the Pakistan authorities following the change within the management of the neighbouring nation. Veteran Pakistani politician Shehbaz Sharif was elected the prime minister after Imran Khan misplaced the place in a vote of no confidence in Parliament.
“Our place could be very easy – there must be an environment freed from terrorism, during which talks could be held,” Bagchi mentioned. Sharif and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi had “exchanged courtesy letters” however there was no change in India’s place, he mentioned.
“Our primary concern is an environment freed from terrorism – it’s a justified demand,” he added.
Bagchi also rejected Sharif’s remarks describing Modi’s go to to Jammu and Kashmir over the weekend as “staged”. Modi visited the union territory to launch a number of growth initiatives and to fulfill grassroots political representatives.
“On the difficulty of the prime minister’s go to to the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir, I don’t perceive the phrase ‘staged’. It appears to point that the go to didn’t happen and we are attempting to point out that it did,” he mentioned.
The reception accorded to Modi, the visuals of the go to, the inauguration of growth initiatives and the modifications which have occurred on the bottom are a “very clear reply to any query that could be raised in regards to the prime minister’s go to”, Bagchi mentioned. “Pakistan has no locus to speak about it from this attitude on what’s occurring in Jammu and Kashmir,” he added.
Quickly after Modi’s go to to Kashmir, Sharif mentioned in a tweet: “Indian PM’s staged go to to IIOJK & laying basis stones of hydroelectric initiatives, in contravention of Indus Waters Treaty, is one other determined try and undertaking false ‘normalcy’ in occupied territory. We stand with Kashmiris as they rejected the go to & noticed Black Day.”
Pakistan’s International Workplace too had issued a press release saying that the go to was aimed toward diverting consideration from the “precise underlying points”.
