Islamabad, Aug 22 (IANS) Pakistan’s National Security Adviser Sartaj Aziz on Saturday said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants to normalise ties with Pakistan on his own terms.
“Jab se Modi sahab aaye hain tab se unki yeh policy hai ki woh Pakistan se rishte normalise karna chahte hain per yeh woh apne terms per karna chahte hain (since Modi has come to power he wants dialogue on his terms),” Aziz said at press conference here.
He said India would soon realise that talks without Kashmir was “not possible for us”.
The Pakistan high commission in Delhi has invited Jammu and Kashmir separatist leaders to hold deliberations with Aziz ahead of the NSA talks. India has adviced against it.
“In fact it was India which introduced a new condition through its advice that Pakistan should not meet Hurriyat leaders, thus assuming the right to determine the guest list for the high commissioner’s reception,” he said.
Aziz is scheduled to meet his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval on August 24 in Delhi.
