Islamabad: Talking peace Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said that Pakistan is ready to hold talks with India without any preconditions, reported Geo News.
Sharif also said Pakistan intends to maintain friendly relations with all its neighbours, including India and Afghanistan. Sharif stated this when he met British Premier David Cameron on the sidelines of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in the Maltese capital on Friday.
Both also agreed to continue close collaboration in diverse fields, particularly in trade, investment and security. Stating that Pakistan condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and was deeply saddened by the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, Sharif said Pakistan itself being victim of terrorism could feel the pain of the French.
Cameron lauded Pakistan’s efforts in eradication of militancy and extremism. However Pakistani double standard of talking peace while sponsoring terror is not new.
On the other hand Pakistani Defence Minister Khawaja Asif asserted on Thursday that the country is fully capable of defending itself from any Indian aggression, Defence Minister Khawaja Asif asserted on Thursday.
“The extremist mentality with which Modi soared to great heights, the same mentality will trigger his fall,” said Asif, according to a report by Radio Pakistan.

“India itself spoiled the atmosphere and created distances,” averred the defence minister. He also added that every effort that can be made for peace must be undertaken and initiated.
