India rejects Pakistan help over Kashmir issue

New Delhi: India today rejected Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry proposal to the Indian High Commission in Islamabad for sending essential supplies to Jammu and Kashmir.

The India’s External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup, said “I can only characterize its (note verbal) contents as absurd.”

Swarup, said the whole region have already received enough of Pakistan’s trademark exports of “international terrorism, cross-border infiltrations, weapons, narcotics and fake currency.”

He further added, “We completely and categorically reject this purported communication from the Pakistan Foreign Ministry.”

Pakistan’s foreign policy chief, Sartaj Aziz, said on Friday that Islamabad wanted to have an exclusive dialogue on Jammu and Kashmir with New Delhi and that the Pakistani Foreign Secretary would write to his Indian counterpart about this.

India responded that it would welcome a dialogue on contemporary and relevant issues only.

India-Pakistan ties have become frosty after largescale violence broke out in Jammu and Kashmir following the killing of Kashmiri militant Burhan Wani on July 8th.

Indian authorities arrested Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Bahadur Ali in Jammu and Kashmir on July 25th, who officials said had sneaked in from Pakistan.
