"There is no point in talking to them. I mean, I have done all the talking. Unfortunately, now when I look back, all the overtures that I was making for peace and dialogue, I think they took it for appeasement," said he in an interview with The New York Times.

"My worry is that this can escalate and for two nuclear-armed countries, it should be alarming for the world what we are facing now," he told The New York Times .
