In a sharp reaction to the cancellation of talks between the foreign ministers of India and Pakistan, Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan has hit out at India in angry tweets. He alleged that the decision to call off foreign minister level talks is an “arrogant and negative response” to his offer for dialogue.
Indirectly using insulting language against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said in tweets in Engilsh and Urdu :“Disappointed at the arrogant & negative response by India to my call for resumption of the peace dialogue. However, all my life I have come across small men occupying big offices who do not have the vision to see the larger picture.”
Hitting back at the Pakistan PM for his remarks, Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad asked what else can be expected from a “person who is sitting in the position of prime minister at the directions of his country’s army”. “There will be no talks with Pakistan till our soldiers keep getting killed,” he said while addressing the media in the national capital. India has long accused Pakistan of arming rebel groups in Kashmir, a Himalayan territory divided between the two countries but claimed in full by both.
