Terrorism, talks cannot go together: BJP on Manmohan-Nawaz meet
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: With Prime Minister Manmohan Singh confirming that he would be meeting his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif during his visit to the US which began on Wednesday, Bharatiya Janata Party raised strong opposition to PM’s decision to engage in dialogue with Pakistan.
Raising strong objections to Manmohan-Nazaz meet in the US, BJP leader Yashwant Singh said that terrorism and talks cannot go together.
The senior BJP leader stressed on engaging with Pakistan through diplomatic channels. “We must tell them (Pakistan) through diplomatic channels to stop terrorism, only then will we (India) engage in talks with them,” Sinha said.
“Looking at recent incidents at Line of Control it isn`t right time to indulge in summit level talks,” the BJP leader stated.
The Prime Minister, in his departure statement, said he looks forward to bilateral meetings with leaders of some neighbouring countries including Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal during his visit to New York.
The Prime Minister is heading to New York to address the UNGA Sep 28. A meeting between Dr Singh and his Pakistan counterpart is likely on Sept 29 on the sidelines of the UNGA.
