[VIDEO] India is reaching out for ‘dialogue’ but Pakistan sets 5 preconditions for it
"We are ready for dialogue with India if the Modi government accepts all the preconditions"- Dr. Moeed Yusuf
Pakistan has set five preconditions for the resumption of “meaningful dialogue” with India to settle all striking issues, including the longstanding Indian Occupied Kashmir dispute.
In an interview with the Indian journalist, Karan Thapar, the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on National Security, Dr. Moeed Yusuf, said, “Pakistan aspired peaceful relations with India and wanted to resolve all issues through dialogue.”
However, the Special Assistant stated that for any meaningful dialogue to take place between the two neighbors, India has to fulfill these preconditions:
Release all political prisoners in Kashmir,
End violent siege and restraints,
Revoke the domicile law that permits non-Kashmiris to settle in the disputed territory,
End human rights violations,
Stop state terrorism in Pakistan,
It is the first time that Pakistan has proposed its preconditions for the continuation of talks with India since the Modi government reversed the special status of the Indian Occupies Kashmir.
“We are ready for dialogue with India if the Indian government accepts all the preconditions,” he said.
Yusuf also spoke about the Indian intelligence agency, Research and Analysis Wing’s (RAW’s) connection in terrorism in Pakistan.
“We have evidence that the main mastermind behind the APS terrorist attack in Peshawar was in contact with the RAW,” he stated.
Dr. Moeed Yusuf added that India used its missions in one of Pakistan’s neighboring countries to expedite and sponsor terrorist attacks at a five-star Hotel in Gwadar, the Chinese Consulate in Karachi, and the Pakistan Stock Exchange.
Towards the end of the interview, the SAPM said that Prime Minister Imran Khan wanted a peaceful neighborhood, but India’s colonialist and Hindutva strategies were the main obstacles in the path of regional peace.
