India on Thursday said Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif’s comment that the Kargil misadventure in 1999 was a stab in the back for then PM A B Vajpayee was “confirmation of facts”.
MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup said, “Nawaz Sharif has said something which was known to all. Everybody knew about it. He has only confirmed a truth which we all aware of.” Sharif is reported to have made the comment at a rally in Muzaffarabad.
On the proposed FS-level talks between the two sides, Swarup said foreign secretaries of both the countries were in touch with each other but no dates have been finalised yet.
