Imran Khan's comments on Indo-Pak relations
Further, keeping in line with Islamabad's earlier suggestions that the stalemate in India-Pakistan dialogue was a doing of the BJP government, PM Khan said that he was willing wait till after the 2019 elections for any gesture from Delhi to resume bilateral talks.
However, he said that he was willing to talk to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and that earlier conversations with PM Modi had been "very good".
What India had told Pakistan earlier
Earlier, on Wednesday, India had refused to resume bilateral talks with Pakistan till the latter stopped sponsoring terrorism in India.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had reminded Pakistan that the Kartarpur corridor gesture would not be enough for the resumption of dialogue, and that Pakistan's action against terrorism would determine whether India would participate in a possible SAARC summit in Islamabad.
