'Move out of PoK' India states in new letter to Islamabad
New Delhi, Aug 25: India has written yet another letter to Pakistan reiterating that talks would only be on terrorism and Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). The letter written by foreign secretary S Jaishankar states that Islamabad needs to move out of Pakistan occupied Kashmir.
The letter is a reply to Pakistan's foreign secretary Aizaz Choudhary who had invited India to discuss the Kashmir issue. India has, however, maintained that if there are talks with Pakistan it shall be only regarding terrorism and Pakistan occupied Kashmir.
Pakistan had written to India after Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said on Independence Day that human rights violations need to stop at PoK and Balochistan.
Jaishankar had accepted the invite by Pakistan to hold talks but maintained that only Pakistan sponsored terrorism would be discussed and Kashmir will not be on the table.
India has maintained that the issue relating to Kashmir is an internal one. India has also stated that Pakistan has been stoking violence in the Valley apart from helping terrorists infiltrate.
