Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi's comments came after Pakistan's Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani on Sunday cancelled his official trip to the UAE, a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi was honoured with the 'Order of Zayed,' UAE's highest civilian award.
Earlier this week in Washington, Trump said that he would discuss with Prime Minister Modi the situation in Kashmir and help ease the Indo-Pak tensions when they meet at the G7 Summit in France this weekend.
Until recently, Pakistani PM Imran Khan was being hailed as a hero at home for having convinced the US president that Kashmir was a ‘flashpoint’ in urgent need of ministration. But India’s Kashmir moves put Pakistan in a spot.
Resumption of the on-off dialogue process started in 1997 can be ruled out. This has become hostage to India insisting on stopping terrorism and Pakistan on starting talks on Kashmir first. The first window on dialogue will open after the 2019 elections.
