India has dismissed Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s proposition for a SAARC summit in Islamabad on grounds that “there has been no material change in the circumstance” since the eighteenth get-together of eight South Asian innovators in Kathmandu in 2014.
“There is still no agreement that would allow the holding of the culmination,” said MEA representative Arindam Bagchi when requested to react to Qureshi’s perceptions at a public interview.
The nineteenth SAARC culmination was planned to be held in Islamabad in November 2016. In any case, India declared its blacklist after a psychological militant assault on an Army camp in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir. Along these lines, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, the Maldives and Bhutan additionally would not go to the culmination, prompting its endless deferment.
Qureshi had proposed that the SAARC summit be held in Islamabad and India could go to it essentially assuming its chiefs were unwilling to coming to Pakistan.
On the Kremlin-drifted proposition for a potential Russia-India-China in-person highest point, the representative noticed that the three Foreign Ministers had held a virtual gathering on November 26. “Past that, there isn’t anything to add,” he said.
