Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Friday that the people of Pakistan and India want peace, stressing that New Delhi must create a “conducive environment” for talks between neighboring countries.
His comments came during a conversation with reporters on the sidelines of a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in the Indian state of Goa.
It is up to India to create a favorable climate for talks, the foreign minister said, adding that India’s decision to end the special status of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir in 2019 will improve the climate for the having conversations between the neighbours.
However, Bilawal said that despite his rare visit to India, there was no change in the status of diplomatic relations. “India took illegal steps in August 2019 and its actions violated UN resolutions,” the FM said.
The foreign minister withdrew that Pakistan has a clear and solid stance on the Kashmir issue, stressing that India’s “unilateral actions” have affected the terms between the two countries.
This is a developing story and will be updated with more details.
