India cited the "brutal" killing of three policemen in Jammu and Kashmir as well as the release of postal stamps "glorifying" terrorist Burhan Wani for cancelling the meeting between Swaraj and Qureshi on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in NY this month.
The India Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Friday cited the "brutal killings", as well as Pakistan's reported release of postage stamps glorifying terrorism, as reasons for branding any dialogue "meaningless" and calling the meeting off.
India on Friday called off the meeting between external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and her Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi in NY, citing the killing of three policemen in Jammu and Kashmir as well as the release of postal stamps glorifying militant Burhan Wani, Times of India reported.
India accepted the suggestion of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, who had written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi that the foreign ministers of the two countries could meet in NY to try and break an impasse in ties. A Pakistani senator took a swipe at India for "running from talks".
The two sides had inched forward for kicking off a renamed Comprehensive Bilateral Dialogue, but it too got stalled after the Pathankot terror attack in 2016.
India's acceptance had also come a day after the killing and slitting of the throat of a BSF jawan in Jammu, for which the security force lodged a protest with Pakistan Rangers, terming the act as "unsoldierly".
In his letter to Modi, Khan said India and Pakistan had "an undeniably challenging relationship" but owed it to their citizens to solve their issues peacefully. Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that India has "once again wasted an opportunity for peace." .
