NEW YORK: India reacted over prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s speech in the United Nations, Indian Minister for State on External Affairs M J Akbar stating that India is always ready for dialogue but it will not get blackmailed by Pakistan, Aaj News reported.
While conducting a press conference in New York, Indian Minister for State on External Affairs M J Akbar rejected Sharif’s offer to India to enter into a serious and sustained dialogue for the peaceful resolution of all outstanding disputes.
The minister expressed his reservations over a statement by Nawaz Sharif which called Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani who was killed by the Indian Army in July a ‘leader’.
Indian Minister also blamed Pakistan for Uri Sector incident, meanwhile Pakistan denied this allegation.
In a strong speech to the UN General Assembly, Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday called on the Security Council to urgently implement its resolutions calling for the exercise of right to self-determination by Kashmiri people to pave the way for peace and stability in South Asia.
Nawaz Sharif further said that peace between India and Pakistan could not be achieved as long as the Kashmir dispute is not resolved.
At the same time, the Pakistani leader warned the international community against ignoring the dangers of the current Indo-Pakistan tensions, saying Pakistan will soon open consultations with the members of 15-nation Council to explore the modalities for implementation of the Security Council resolutions on Kashmir.
