Now, Pakistan has “no problem” with bilateral talks

Islamabad | Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has now said, “We have no problem with bilateral dialogue with India”, amid escalating tensions between the two countries.

He asserted that they had no problems in talking with India.

“We have never said no to dialogue. However, we cannot see the environment of dialogue being created by India”, said Qureshi.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan had earlier said that there would be no bilateral talks now, after Centre revoked Article 370 from the controversial state of Jammu and Kashmir.

They have also called out international organisations to intervene in the issue, however, most of them snubbed them and called Kashmir an “internal issue of India” and promoted bilateral talks.

“Any external intervention on the issue will be highly appreciated”, said Qureshi.

Qureshi suggested that a dialogue can be initiated with India after it releases political leadership under house arrest in Jammu and Kashmir, asserting that the Kashmir issue has three parties Pakistan, India and the people of Kashmir.

“There can be a dialogue when Kashmiri leaders are released. I should be allowed to meet them so I can compel them into a dialogue”, said Qureshi.

Soon after the scrapping of Article 370, Centre had detained all the mainstream leaders in Kashmir, including former Chief Ministers Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah.

Meanwhile, Imran Khan has repeatedly called out for international help for Kashmir and mentioned “military confrontation” and “war” multiple times.
