NEW DELHI (Daily Dunya) – India while snubbing China has rejected its mediation offer to resolve Kashmir issue.
Spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs of India Gopal Baglay said that they are ready to hold talks with Pakistan on the matter but no third party mediation is accepted.
“We are ready to talk Kashmir with Pakistan, but no third party mediation,” MEA spokesperson Gopal Baglay told reporters.
“We have been ready to have dialogues with Pakistan in a bilateral framework. That position of addressing all issues, including the Kashmir issue, in a bilateral framework has not changed,” he said.
“(But) at the heart of the matter is really the issue of cross-border terrorism perpetrated on India, including on the people of Jammu and Kashmir. So, the matter is that cross-border terrorism in our region emanating from a particular source is threatening peace and stability not only in India but in other neighbouring countries,” he said.
