Pak Has Strong Case, Be It Kashmir or Other Issues: Qureshi

In the wake of proposal of foreign secretary level talks with Pakistan by India, Islamabad has claimed that it was New Delhi which had blinked on talks, reported PTI.

Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Pakistan foreign minister, said that India had talked about breaking the ‘relationship’ and it was India that turned back on Pakistan, said reports.

“But two days ago, India has approached and said they want to sit and talk to us and want to resume their relationship with us,” Qureshi was quoted as saying during a public meeting in Multan in Punjab on Sunday.

“Pakistan hasn’t knelt… It didn’t kneel. Pakistan held its ground,” Shah was quoted as saying, indulging in rhetorics as a build up to the talks has started.

The minister also said that Pakistan would put forth its case before India claiminig ‘our case is strong. It’s not week, whether it be Kashmir or water or any other issue’, said report.

“Pakistan has a clear stance regarding every issue be it Kashmir or the water issue and we would not step back from their stance,” he was quoted as saying.

It should be mentioned that eight issues including Jammu and Kashmir and terrorism were discussed in four rounds of talks under the composite dialogue before it was ‘paused’ in November 2008 in the wake of Mumbai attacks.
