India sabotaged peace talks owing to their 'fanatic approach': Asif
ISLAMABAD: Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif said on Sunday India sabotaged talks scheduled between the national security advisers of the nuclear-armed neighbours owing to their ' fanatic approach'.
"Pakistan was serious for holding the talks which were the best way for resolving problems but the pre-conditions put by India were not acceptable to us," the defence minister said, reported Radio Pakistan. Asif said the Modi-led government's negative attitude would disrupt peace in the region. Pakistan's armed forces were capable of defending frontiers and sovereignty of the country, the defence minister said, adding Pakistan Army was successfully eliminating terrorists from the region. He said Indian forces were constantly violating the Line of Control and Working Boundary to pre-occupy the army.
