ISLAMABAD, Sep 29 (APP): Spokesman Pakistan Foreign Office on Thursday said India doesn’t take interest in bilateral dialogue.

Responding to miscellaneous media questions, the spokesman said that in past too, India creating hurdles in SAARC meetings.
Nafees noted that statement by Indian External Affairs minister in which she termed Kashmir as “integral part”, is a clear violation of UN Resolutions on Kashmir issue. “International community must take its notice” he said adding that it is an irresponsible statement.
However, the spokesman maintained that Pakistan wants peaceful ties with its neighbors, and it will continue taking steps for regional cooperation.
Moreover, Nafees told that various parliamentary delegations and Pakistani ambassadors have been sent to different capitals of the world to highlight Indian atrocities in IOK.
It is worth mentioning here that Foreign Office has also strongly condemned unprovoked ceasefire violations at LoC by Indian forces, stating “it is a continuation of a pattern of cease fire violations committed by the Indian forces. The valiant Armed Forces of Pakistan have given and will continue to give a befitting response to any aggression”. Pakistan has also rejected the baseless Indian claim that it has “carried out surgical strikes into Pakistan” saying “the Indian side has chosen to share this falsified claim with the Indian media”.
