Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has been eagerly awaiting talks with India for several months. Today, whenever he has the opportunity to speak, whatever the context, he definitely evokes relations with India and Kashmir. Even after a meeting with the president of Tajikistan, who arrived in Islamabad two days ago, Imran was quick to discuss with India. Now in a conversation with the Reuters news agency, he has also said he is ready to hold talks if India reinstates Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. At the same time, India has made it clear that there will be no talks until Pakistan stops terrorism.
Offer to negotiate with condition
On the question posed in the talks with India, Imran said that if there is a roadmap, then yes, we will talk. Previously, Imran Khan and several leaders of his government said that before starting the process of normalizing relations with India, it will have to return the abolished status of Kashmir in 2019. At the same time, if this condition of the Pakistan is seen from India’s point of view, it seems impossible at the moment.
Imran wants article 370 back
Suffice to say that on August 5, 2019, India abolished Articles 370 and 35A implemented in Jammu and Kashmir. Since then, the Constitution and laws of India have been fully implemented in this state. Not only that, the government of India, dividing Jammu and Kashmir into two parts, abolished the status of the state and made it a Union territory. Angered by this decision, the Pakistani government had withdrawn its ambassador by stopping bilateral trade with India.
