Despite increasingly fiery statements from Pakistan on Kashmir, External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna has clarified India won’t allow such rhetoric to derail talks between the two nations and said he was open to talking about Kashmir.
“We are willing to talk on Kashmir also with Pakistan,” he said in an interview to HT.
Asked what the contours of discussions on Kashmir could be, he said, “It’s going to be a free-wheeling discussion. There are not going to be any parameters.”
He said if Pakistan was attempting to impose conditions in advance, it would result in “injecting an element of distrust” within the process of talks.
