Pakistan to resume talks with India only after elections: Minister
Dubai, Jan 28 (PTI) Pakistan will try to resume peace talks with India only after election results are out as it is “useless” to talk to New Delhi because no big decisions are expected from the present Indian government, a senior minister has said.
Fawad Chaudhry, Minister of Information of Pakistan, said that the time is not right to hold a dialogue as the Indian leaders are preparing for the upcoming general elections, Gulf News reported.
It is useless to talk to them (India) now unless there is some stability. We will move forward once the new government is formed after the elections,” he said.
“We have delayed our efforts to hold talks with India because we do not expect any big decision from the present Indian leadership,” he said.
He said the Pakistan government would respect any Indian leader and the party elected by the Indian people.
When asked which Indian leader will suit Pakistan more when it comes to peace talks Narendra Modi or Rahul Gandhi , the minister said it does not matter for Pakistan.
