New Delhi, Aug 19: Ahead of the NSA level talks which India has decided not to call off despite all the provocation by Pakistan, talk of the role of the non-state actors in cross border firing will be raised.
There is a lot that Pakistan has been doing to provoke us ahead of the talks, but we have decided that we will not call off the talks and instead give them proof of how non-state actors are playing a role in the cross border violations, sources tell OneIndia.
Despite all the provocations in terms of terrorist attacks, cross border firing and now inviting the separatists for talks, India has maintained the NSA level meet will go on.
Will not allow Pakistan to derail talks:
The Indian official says that they are aware that Pakistan will come to the table with several allegations.
Yesterday when Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharrif approved the agenda for the talks, it was stated that they would raise the issue of Balochistan.
However India says that these provocative measures will not work. We will stick to the point and also tell Paksitan not to use their non-state actors to provoke India along the border.
The recent violations along the Line of Control and the unprovoked firing show that it is not just the Pakistan army behind it.
Along the border it has been found that not just the Pakistan army, but even terrorist groups are involved in the firing since the past couple of days. They are in a desperate situation and have even resorted to heavy shelling to increase infiltrations.
Unhappy with invite to separatists:
New Delhi is not happy with the invitation handed out by Pakistan to meet with the separatists. We are not in favour of this meeting, but we have our strategy ready.
We will tell Pakistan that talks can never move in the right direction if separatists who work contrary to the interests of India are involved.
We will convey our displeasure, but if they still go ahead with the talks, then we have a strong reply awaiting them at the NSA level talks, the official informed.
We are aware that there is a section in Paksitan which wants to derail the talks. At first they expected us to call off the talks and when they realized we were not relenting they are coming to the table with a host of allegations.
They are also aware that talking to the separatists will anger us and this is just another attempt to derail the process, the official also said.
