Cancellation of NSA-level talks with Pak reflects Modi govt's
Congress tonight alleged the cancellation of India's NSA-level talks with Pakistan "reflects Modi government's foreign policy failure."
"Confusion, consternation and casual callousness are the three C's of Modi government's foreign policy which lacks both maturity and vision," Congress chief spokesman Randeep Surjewala said soon after Pakistan called off the talks in the backdrop of India making it clear that discussions on Kashmir and a meeting with separatists will not be acceptable.
He asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi "to rise above pure rhetoric and address the issues of internal and external terrorism whose focal points lie in Pakistan."
"India awaits a decisive and cohesive enunciation of a mature foreign policy that takes care of our strategic concerns, security issues and peaceful bilateral relationship," Surjewala said.
