No more peace talks with India, says Imran Khan
August 24, 2019
Over the past few days, there has been rising tensions from Pakistan after Prime Minister Imran Khan openly threatened India for a nuclear war. This was after an agitated Khan reacted to India's decision of scrapping Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. Talking to New York Times, Khan said that Pakistan does not want to involve in any peace talks with India. Instead, he fears the threat of a military escalation between India and Pakistan, both of which are nuclear powers. Khan's latest statement provoking a nuclear war has sparked an outrage.
Now, Imran Khan does not want to talk, refuses to take measures against terror groups and threatens nuclear war! This is music to Modi's ears-Ashok Swain, Member, Uppasala University, Sweden.
Khan told to the New York based daily that he is done holding peace talks with India as India took it for appeasement. Over the past few days, he has been tweeting on social media calling the Indian government 'racist' and 'fascist'
Over the years, India has been giving warnings to Pakistan to curb terrorism inside their own soil after which peace talks would happen. Even international communities stepped up for the same. But Pakistan has not taken any appropriate action to counter terrorism. After 40 CRPF jawans were killed in Pulwama attack is when India decided to retaliate.
"After leaders of US, France, Russia and UK reject @ImranKhanPTI on the diplomatic side, he turns to @nytimes to make his case, raises the nuclear threat", tweeted Gautam Chikermane, Vice-President, Observer Research Foundation.
