Pakistan would no longer seek dialogue with India: PM Imran Khan

New York, August 22, 2019: Deploring lack of any response to his repeated offers of dialogue by India before and after the August 5 crackdown in occupied Kashmir, Prime Minister Imran Khan has said he would no longer seek dialogue with Indian leaders.

“There is no point in talking to them. I mean, I have done all the talking. Unfortunately, now when I look back, all the overtures that I was making for peace and dialogue, I think they took it for appeasement,” he said in an interview with The New York Times at the Prime Minister’s office in Islamabad.

“There is nothing more that we can do,” he added.

The newspaper’s correspondent, Salman Masood, wrote his interview with the Pakistani leader was the first with an international news organization aimed at projecting his anger over the grave situation in Kashmir stemming from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s annexation of the disputed state — “and it appeared to reflect his frustration at what he views as India’s intransigence.”
