Pakistan on Friday said there was no “backdoor” diplomacy going on with India and the composite dialogue process between the two countries remains suspended. “There was no backdoor or track-II diplomacy going on between Pakistan and India, as such kind of contacts were established on the desire of two sides,” Pakistan Prime Minister’s Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz told Express News channel.

India has always blamed Pakistan for militancy without any proof, Aziz claimed.

“India had the habit of blaming Pakistan after every terrorist incident in their country without providing any solid evidence,” he said.

He said the Composite Dialogue Process between the two countries remained suspended.

Aziz said the issue of Kashmir and the continued “human rights violations” there were the focus of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s address at the UN General Assembly.

Aziz also rejected the notion of Pakistan’s diplomatic isolation and claimed that his country was moving in the right direction, according to the state-run news agency Associated Press of Pakistan.

He said that with the major “re-alignments” underway at global and geo-strategic levels, Pakistan was moving in the right direction.

“Development of Eurasia by Russia and China, activation of SCO (Shanghai Cooperation Organisation), formation of AIB (Asian Investment Bank), etc., indicated major re-alignments,” he said.

Aziz said the cause of concern in the western countries about Pakistan was its growing relations and cooperation with China.

He said Pakistan also enjoyed good bilateral ties with the US, the UK, the European Union, the Middle East and other regions of the world.

Aziz’s remarks come amid strain in ties following the Uri terror attack in which 19 Indian soldiers were killed and India’s surgical strikes on seven terror launch pads across the LoC on the intervening night of September 28 and 29.

      No creditability left for stan. Their Army, by its action and support to terrorists, has damaged the name of stan and its people. These guys even forgotton the innocent, school children were killed by terrorists, who were rendered by Army.lt;br/gt;SHAMLESS CREATURES.lt;br/gt;Pak people has to dictate the terms to Army, terrorists, ISI...etc, since they elect the Government. Whereas real rulers are Army, isi, terrorists, who are taking Govt to ramsom

            India should not hold any dialogue with stan till all anti-india terrorists are killed. Also POK to be handed over to India then only India should have any further talks. India has to switch over from. diplomatic offensive to a military offensive .That is the only language the rogue army of stan understands. A shameless country stan has no achievement in last 70 years except nurturing terrorism.

                  The fossil called sartaj aziz is very good for India. He is himself taking stan to stone age with his stupid talks and stupid looks ( i am sorry for this). His terror friendly solutions to all stan problems is isolating stan every where. lt;br/gt;stan cannot find a foreign minister younger than 95 years is also one big defeat of stan.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;I wish long life to sartaj aziz till the parion of republic of balochistan, and republic of sindh. Pashtoon's independence may take some time.

                    These s ask evidence for every attack again and again. How about Kasab (video confession) and Dog-wood ( living in Karachi) evidence! Are these people are just pretending or deaf and dump... What sort of role the International bodies Interpol, UN will play in this regard? It's really frustrating to know this blame game... And either no action or dubious action against Porkistan by our Government. I suspect we don't have have balls still... Even after having so called nuclear deterrent.

                        The west is not in the least bothered by stan cozying up to China or Russia. They very well know that neither of these two countries are going to give alms to stan.

                              Rather it is backdoor (terrorism) diplomacy from stan that is really successful. SartaJ Aziz doesn't know what to say, just lip service for the huge amount he gets paid by the Pak govt, I guess.

                                          isolating stan is out of question. It is formed on the basis of religion, just like isreal or vatican. And it is blessed by royal family of england and saudi arabia. Isolating stan is never possible. But all religions are to respect youths. We in India respect bramcharya. So many heroes in our epic are brahmcharis. Salman khan doesn't go on dating like imran khan but he is big hero in india, bigger than the two married khans, Aamir and SRK, So stanis should quit showing us their italian suits and their propaa. And show us some change dealing their youths with some respect. The current anger against stan is not for religion, but it is for wasting their youths by sending them to us as terrorists, and wasting the youths of kashmir also. The media will make it look like it is religious hatred, but that is completely wrong. India is helping stan do allah proud, if it wants to take.
