A perception is being created that Pakistan and India are coming closer. The Kashmiris are being buried with Pakistani flags and here we are meeting with their killers as if everything is all well: Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan
Pakistan’s former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Wednesday expressed dismay at the meeting between the country’s National Security Advisor, Lt General (retd) Nasser Khan Janjua and Indian High Commissioner to Islamabad, Ajay Bisaria, saying the holding of the meeting was “beyond comprehension” after the “ongoing Indian aggression in Kashmir.”
Reacting to the Janjua-Bisaria meeting which took place on late Tuesday, Nisar said that the Pakistani government should consider the message such meetings would convey to the Kashmiri people.
He said when the Pakistani diplomats in India are facing harassment, here in Islamabad, people are calling for strengthening their friendships with the Indian diplomats.
He said the United Nations has taken notice of the ongoing crisis in Kashmir; Amnesty International has called the Indian security forces operations as an open state-sponsored terrorism.
“A perception is being created that Pakistan and India are coming closer,” he said. “The Kashmiris are being buried with Pakistani flags and here we are meeting with their killers as if everything is all well,” The Nation quoted Nisar as saying.
The Indian envoy called on Janjua to discuss the “recently worsening situation” in Kashmir. “Pakistan is committed to resolving all outstanding issues through comprehensive dialogues,” Janjua was quoted as saying in a statement. He said Pakistan is pursuing a policy of friendly relations with its neighbouring countries including India, and that “normalcy of relations are always a top priority.”
“Pakistan is deeply committed to the cause of Kashmir and supports to resolve this issue politically and according to the aspirations of Kashmiri people. The process of dialogue is the only way forward to resolve our disputes. It is by way of peaceful resolution of our disputes that can enable both the countries to belong to the future,” read the statement.
