Pakistan on Friday regretted India’s rejection of talks on Kashmir issue.
Reaction from Pakistan comes a day after India on Thursday formally rejected Pakistan’s proposal to hold exclusive talks on the issue of valley.
On August 19, Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry invited his Indian counterpart S Jaishankar to visit Islamabad for bi-lateral talks focusing on the Valley.
However, India responded to Islamabad’s proposal expressing willingness for talks if the agenda was ‘cross-border terrorism’.
“The letters tell Pakistan that if you want a serious conversation of the kind we’d hoped we were beginning when Pathankot happened, we’re open to that,” a senior official involved in drafting the documents said. “However, if you want to reduce our engagement to scoring propaganda points at home, fine, we can play that game too.”
