Nawaz to break tradition, not to meet separatists

KL Report


Against the traditions, Pakistan Prime minister Nawaz Sharief is not meeting Kashmiri separatists in New Delhi during his 24 hour stay in India.

Nawaz will reach New Delhi on Monday afternoon to attend the swearing in ceremony of Narindra Modi.

Nawaz will spend the night in India and leave for Islamabad on Tuesday.

“We have not received any communiqué from the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi so far,” Hurriyat (G) spokesman, Ayaz Akbar told Kashmir Life.

It has been a tradition of every Pakistani leader to interact with the separatist leaders on their New Delhi visits.

Sources said that none of the separatist leaders has been sent out any invitation so far for any meeting with Nawaz.

“Maybe, Nawaz does not want to create bad ambiance with Modi in his their first meeting,” sources said.

Meeting between Pakistani visiting leaders and the separatists always created sharp reaction in India, particularly from the BJP, which is now the ruling party.

Modi will have bilateral talks with Nawaz at one-to-one level as also with delegations on Tuesday morning.
