Ending terrorism pre-condition for dialogue with Pak: Rajnath

MATHURA: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said ending terrorist activities was a pre-condition for any dialogue with Pakistan as its “dual” role is unacceptable to India.

“Promoting terrorist activities and entering into a dialogue for peace cannot run together,” he said, when asked by reporters to explain why India is avoiding any dialogue with Pakistan.

He said either Islamabad should stop aiding terrorist activities or express its commitment against terrorism with assurance that it would not allow it to grow in Pakistan.

“If it finds difficult to control terrorist activities, why it is not seeking help from its neighbour India?” he asked.

“If a crusade against Taliban can start in Afghanistan with the help of the US , why not commence a similar action in Pakistan?,” the Home Minister asked. (AGENCIES)
