Joint statement was Prime Minister Modi’s Idea: Sources to NDTV
New Delhi: The breakthroughs between Pakistan and India accomplished by recent talks between premiers Narendra Modi and Nawaz Sharif are not disintegrating, sources in the government told NDTV today, attributing aggressive comments made yesterday by Pakistani officials to posturing for “a domestic audience.”
The sources said that India remains committed to the joint statement that was issued by the governments of both countries after Mr Modi met with Mr Sharif last week on the sidelines of a regional summit in Ufa in Russia.
The joint statement, which was unexpected and delivered in rare occurrence by the Foreign Secretaries of the two countries, was Prime Minister Modi’s idea, said sources.
“India has to judge what Pakistan says to us, not what they say to domestic audience,” said sources to NDTV.
