Can’t pursue talks with Pakistani conditions: India

Jaipur, Aug 21 (IANS) India on Friday virtually axed the NSA level talks with Pakistan, saying “unilateral imposition of new conditions and distortion of the agreed agenda cannot be the basis for going forward”.

There was no clear announcement that the August 23-24 talks between National Security Advisers Ajit Doval of India and Sartaj Aziz of Pakistan were off but New Delhi clearly made known its displeasure over Islamabad’s insistence on holding parleys with Kashmiri separatist leaders.

Soon after the external affairs ministry statement was released, official sources insisted that India had not called off the talks but there was no formal statement to back it up.
