Sushma Swaraj: “No Dialogue” between India and Pak; PM won’t attend SAARC

Just a day after Pakistan invited to PM Modi, Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said, “That invitation has already been given but we are not responding to that positively. That until and unless Pakistan stops terrorist activities in India, there will be “no dialogue”and we will not participate in SAARC.”

When asked about Indian ministers attending the ground-breaking Kartarpur event in Lahore, she replied, “See, bilateral dialogues and Kartarpur corridor are two different things. And I am very happy that for the last 20 years, rather many years, India has been asking for the Kartarpur corridor and for the first time, Pakistan responded positively to this. But it doesn’t mean that the bilateral dialogue will start only on this. The bilateral talks always say that terror and talks can’t go together. The moment Pakistan stops terrorist activities in India, the dialogue can start. But the dialogue is not only connected with Kartarpur corridor.”

She further declared,“PM Narendra Modi will not go to Pakistan to attend the SAARC Summit.”
