ever go­ing to hap­pen," Shaina NC said.

Re­spond­ing to Pak­istan's For­eign Af­fairs ad­vi­sor Sar­taj Aziz's com­ment on un­rest in Kash­mir, Shaina said, "Sar­taj Aziz can say what he wants but do we want to trust Pak­istan. It is for our Prime Min­is­ter and se­cu­rity agen­cies to work in col­lu­sion with the gov­ern­ment of the day to de­cide what is the best ap­proach to delink with Pak­istan be­cause as they say once bit­ten twice shy."

"One side we have Indian and on the other, the peo­ple who di­vide In­dia," she said while adding that Kash­mir is not up for bar­gain or for sale.

Aziz had on Thurs­day as­serted that Pak­istan has al­ways pro­vided and will con­tinue to pro­vide diplo­matic, po­lit­i­cal and moral sup­port to the peo­ple of Jammu and Kash­mir for re­al­i­sa­tion of their fun­da­men­tal rights to self-de­ter­mi­na­tion in ac­cor­dance with the UNSC res­o­lu­tions.

Aziz had also men­tioned that Pak had lodged its protests with the Indian High Com­mis­sioner on the sit­u­a­tion pre­vail­ing across the bor­der.

It is to be noted that Indo-pak talks were sus­pended sev­eral times in the re­cent past over is­sues like ter­ror­ism, Kash­mir among oth­ers.
