“Is saal ki Jashn e Azadi hum Kashmir ki Azadi ke naam karte hain,” Abdul Basit, Pakistan’s high commissioner to Delhi said.”

Reacting to Pakistani proposal, India said on Friday that only relevant issues will be discussed with Pakistan .
“India would welcome a dialogue on contemporary and relevant issues in India-Pakistan relations,” External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup said.
“At this time they include a stoppage of Pakistani support for cross-border terrorism, infiltration of terrorists like Bahadur Ali, incitement to violence and terrorism across the border, parading of internationally recognized terrorists like Hafiz Saeed and Syed Salahuddin, and sincere follow-up on the Mumbai attack trial and the Pathankot attack investigation in Pakistan,” he stated.
