*ISLAMABAD - *Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan sets condition for talks with India.
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said that there will be no bilateral talks with India until the Narendra Modi government lifts “curfew” in Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The fresh statement from the Pakistan PM came a day after New Delhi maintained that there is no curfew in Jammu and Kashmir, which is now a Union Territory of India.
The Centre on August 5 through a presidential order scrapped Article 370, which provided for Occupied Jammu and Kashmir’s special status.
Virtually ruling out talks on Kashmir with Pakistan, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar had said on Tuesday that revocation of Article 370 is purely an internal issue and the only issue India would discuss with Pakistan is of terrorism.
