Pak. told to maintain diplomatic decorum

Mar 25, 2017
India on Thursday advised Pakistan to control terrorism emanating from its territory and maintain diplomatic decorum. The official comment came on Thursday after the High Commissioner of Pakistan Abdul Basit raised the issue of Kashmir during his speech that he delivered to mark Pakistan Day that was observed on Thursday.
“We have seen media reports about Pakistan High Commissioner’s remarks today regarding the State of Jammu and Kashmir. They are not in keeping with diplomatic niceties and are tantamount to interference in our internal affairs,” said official spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Gopal Baglay. He further added, “Pakistan would be well-advised to effectively address the challenge of terrorism emanating from that country, which has adversely affected peace and stability in the entire neighbourhood as well as Pakistan’s relations with other countries.”
Settle disputes
“Pakistan was keen to settle all the issues with India, including the Jammu and Kashmir dispute, through dialogue,” said a statement issued by the Pakistan High Commission which summed up the speech that the envoy delivered at to mark the day which is celebrated as the National Day of Pakistan.
