India ‘not forthcoming’ on resuming comprehensive dialogue, Pakistan envoy at UN


NEW YORK: India is “not forthcoming” in resuming comprehensive dialoguewith Pakistan and such an attitude is “impeding” prospects of normalization of bilateral relations, Pakistan’s envoy to the UN has said.

Pakistan’s permanent representative to the UN ambassador Maleeha Lodhi told a group of students and faculty members from the US Army War College last week that despite a positive start following the coming to power of the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India suspended talks between the two countries on “flimsy grounds and set unacceptable pre-conditions” for their revival.

According to a news release by the Pakistan mission at the UN, Lodhi said in spite of Pakistan’s call to resume broad-based, comprehensive dialogue, “India was still not forthcoming”.

“This attitude was impeding prospects of normalization between the two countries,” the release said.
