Cancellation Of Talks by Pak Unfortunate: Rajnath


Lucknow: Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said that the cancellation of NSA talks by Pakistan is unfortunate. Throbbing the ball in Pak’s court he further said that the possibility of any future dialogue will depend on the neighbour.

He underlined that India stands for dialogue and cordial relationship with Pakistan, a day after the talks between NSA Ajit Doval and his counterpart Sartaj Aziz were called off.

“The cancellation of NSA-lvel talks between India and Pakistan is unfortunate. India is in favour of dialogue,” Singh said on the sidelines of a function at Sanskrit Vidyapeeth here. On Pakistan blaming India for cancellation of talks, the Home Minister said, “It is Pakistan which has cancelled the talks and not India.”
