Dialogue failure with Pakistan is defeat for Indian government, says Shabir Shah


Dialogue failure with Pakistan is defeat for Indian government, says Shabir Shah

Srinagar, August 25 (ANI): Separatist leader Shabir Shah on Tuesday termed the failure of peace talks between India and Pakistan as defeat for the federal government. The National Security Advisers (NSA)-level talks between New Delhi and Islamabad collapsed on Saturday hours before they were scheduled to start, as the nuclear-armed rivals were unable to overcome deep-rooted mutual mistrust.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif agreed to the talks when they met in Russia last month. But the countries failed at the last minute to agree the agenda for the meeting of their NSAs, due to start on Sunday, with Pakistan accusing India of imposing "preconditions".
