Defence expert Lieutenant General (Retd.) Raj Kadyan on Sunday said Pakistan despite all efforts made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for betterment of ties did not reciprocate, adding the inaction against terrorists is a testament to this fact.

Lieutenant General (Retd.) Kadyan did not appear to be in tune with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz’s assertion that there is no chance of breakthrough in the ties between New Delhi and Islamabad under Prime Minister Modi.

“I think that’s an opinion of Sartaz Aziz, I do not know how many in this world share this opinion. If we talk about developments the very first day when Prime Minister Narendra Modi assumed his office he called Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif then he went out of the way to attend Sharif’s granddaughter’s family function in Lahore after which within a week you launch an attack on Pathankot airbase,” Lieutenant General (Retd.) Kadyan told ANI.

“Pakistan has not even taken action against terrorist which have committed heinous crimes. Aziz’s comments don’t fit in the facts. Modi tried his best sincerely to improve relation with Pakistan. You cannot clap with one hand Pakistan did not cooperate,” he added.

Accusing India of adopting a “hegemonistic attitude”, Aziz has said that there can be no expectations of any breakthrough in ties with India during Prime Minister Modi’s tenure.

“There is no hope for a breakthrough in relations with India under its current Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” Associated Press of Pakistan (APP) quoted Aziz as saying in a TV interview.
