ISLAMABAD/NEW DELHI- Advisor to Prime Minister on foreign affairs Sartaj Aziz has said whichever government comes in India, it can not close doors to talks.
“Whichever government comes in India can neither avert face from talks nor can it shut the doors to the dialogue because people of both the countries want peaceful relations and they also want all the problems to be addressed through dialogue. Therefore, if Narender Modi comes into power he will have to follow footsteps of former Prime Minister Attal Behari Vajpayee and he can not escape from talks”, he said this in an interview quoted by Indian media. Breakthrough in terms of bilateral relations was achieved during BJP led government, he said adding result oriented talks on Kashmir issue can be held with new Indian government. It will be premature to make any prediction about Narendar Modi, he remarked. “We are keeping a watchful eye on Indian polls and a definite opinion can be given only when the electoral process is completed”, he held. If any accord on revival of peace is reached between two countries then certainly a breakthrough can be achieved, he underlined.
