Surprised by Indian stand, says Imran

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday said he was “surprised” over India’s reaction to U.S. President Donald Trump’s offer of mediation for resolving the Kashmir issue which, according to him, had held the subcontinent hostage for 70 years. India has not been engaging with Pakistan since the attack on the Air Force base at Pathankot in January 2016 by Pakistan-based terrorists, maintaining that talks and terror cannot go together. “Surprised by reaction of India to President Trump’s offer of mediation to bring Pak & India to dialogue table for resolving Kashmir conflict which has held subcontinent hostage for 70 yrs,” Mr. Khan, who is here on a three-day working visit, tweeted at the end of his maiden trip. Generations of Kashmiris have suffered & are suffering daily and need conflict resolution,” he tweeted. Mr. Trump on Monday made the offer during his meeting with Mr. Khan at the White House.
