Khan said this while responding to a question about any possibility of a dialogue with New Delhi during his interactions with the representatives of the digital media in Islamabad.
No talks possible with India until they restore the autonomous status of Jammu and Kashmir, he said. We don’t have adversarial relations with any country except India which is trying to destabilize Pakistan, he claimed.
Subsequent attacks, including one on an Indian Army camp in Uri, further deteriorated the relationship.
The relationship further dipped after India’s warplanes pounded a Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist training camp deep inside Pakistan on February 26, 2019, in response to the Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF jawans were killed Withdrawal of Jammu and Kashmir’s special powers, and bifurcating the state into two union territories in August last year also evoked a strong reaction from Pakistan, which has been unsuccessfully trying to rally international support against India on the Kashmir issue India has categorically told the international community that the scrapping of Article 370 was its internal matter.
