New Delhi : In a strong statement made to Pakistan, India has said that talks with Islamabad will not be possible till the Islamic Republic addresses all concerns, including those of terrorism, raised by New Delhi. According to reports, Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan TCA Raghavan, in an interaction with reporters in Islamabad, stated that negotiations between the two nations will not be possible in a ‘climate of terror’, adding that despite the banning of terrorist outfit Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JUD) by the United Nations, its chief Hafiz Saeed was still ‘operating without any checks’.
Raghavan reportedly also sought to dispel any fears of relations between India and US targeting any nation in the South Asia regions, stating that the agreement to boost defence cooperation between New Delhi and Washington DC was a result of the ongoing visit of India by US President Barack Obama.
