ISLAMABAD: Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz has said that India is shying away from talks with Pakistan.

Aziz, talking to state radio was commenting on a recent statement of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Modi in his statement had said that India was willing to engage with Pakistan on varying platforms. However, it was extremely difficult to decide who to speak to about peace in Islamabad.

Sartaj Aziz responding to Modi said that Pakistan seeks to hold talks with India on several agendas including Kashmir, Siachen, Sir Creek, Visa and fishermen issues.

“It is actually India which is shying away as it knows that it has to discuss Kashmir and other issues on the dialogue table,” Aziz said.

The adviser went on to say that Indian Army had rejected an agreement, reached on the Siachen issue by the governments of Pakistan and India, as it has its own interests in it.
