Pak Foreign affairs Minister: ‘India never opened a window of opportunity’

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on Sunday said India never opened a window of opportunity for dialogue and goodwill with Pakistan as all the development in this regard was sabotaged when the talks between the countries were postponed after the Pathankot attack.

“It is a very strange thing to say as it was decided here on December 9 that the dialogue will resume but then the Pathankot incident occurred and everything vanished into thin air,” Aziz said while speaking during Geo News show ‘Naya Pakistan’.

“They say that they will talk if we (Pakistan) make some progress on terrorism, but we say that they (India) should talk on all issues including Kashmir,” said Aziz.

However, Aziz added that “Pakistan is not desperate for talks and there is no restlessness on the Pakistani side for dialogue, but if this region has to see peace, this region has to see co-ordination first.”

“The whole world agrees that India and Pakistan should have composite dialogue.”
