Pakistan has alleged that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is whipping up anti-Pakistan rhetoric in the country because it suits him politically ahead of upcoming elections scheduled for early next year.

According to a report in ‘Dawn’, Sartaj Aziz, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s advisor on foreign affairs, told a news channel that under current situation, it was a remote possibility to expect any breakthrough in frosty ties between India and Pakistan. 

“Whipping up an anti-Pakistan rhetoric by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi suits him ahead of elections during February next year,” Sartaj Aziz said.

 

However, he added that the ultimate resolution of all outstanding issues between India and Pakistan was in resumption of Composite Dialogue.

“For the time being, Pakistan desired to lower the tensions and did not let things heat up further, and this dialogue-driven initiative of Pakistan had earned accolades from the world leaders,” he added.

Talking about the recent ‘Heart of Asia conference’ held in India, Sartaj Aziz said that India gave a very negative message to the world with its repeated flimsy Pakistan-bashing.

Aziz also added that he was surprised at Afghanistan President Ashraf  Ghani’s statement during the conference as prior to it they had held a very constructive meeting. 

“Such reaction indicated an unrealistic approach by the Afghan leadership as it was confronted with very serious and complex issue of unrest and insurgency on its soil,” he said.
