External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday (March 13) while talking India’s World: Modi Government’s Foreign Policy’ said that If Imran Khan is so generous and a statesman, he should give us Masood Azhar, Indian media reported.
“India cannot have dialogue with Pakistan unless the neighbouring country acted against terror outfits on its soil, asserting that “talks and terror cannot go together” adding that Pakistan’s needs to control the ISI and its army who are bent on destroying the bilateral relations time and again.
“We do not want talk on terror, we want action on it. Terror and talks cannot go together,” she said. Swaraj also questioned “Why did the Pakistani military attack us on behalf of JeM? You not only keep JeM on your soil, but fund them and when the victim country retaliates, you attack it on the terror outfit’s behalf. “If Imran Khan (Pakistan prime minister) is so generous and a statesman, he should give us Masood Azhar,” she said.
Her statements came after China once again blocked a move at the Al-Qaeda Sanctions Committee of UN Security Council seeking a ban on Jaish-e-Mohammad chief, Maulana Masood Azhar. A note issued by China’s UN mission to the concerned UN Security Council Committee says China placed a “technical hold” on the request, made by the United States, Britain and France on behest of India to subject Maulana Masood Azhar to an arms embargo, travel ban and asset freeze. China had also blocked a similar move three times in the past.
