Islamabad/New Delhi: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday lashed out at Indian government for cancelling talks with Pakistan. He tweeted “disappointed at the arrogant and negative response” to his call for a resumption of dialogue with India.

He added, “All my life, I have come across small men occupying big offices who do not have the vision to see the larger picture.”

* The latest brutal killings of Indian security personnel by Pakistan terrorists.

* The recent release of a series of 20 postal stamps by Pakistan, glorifying terrorists.

* One audio clip has also been found where orders from Pak were given to kill three Indian Special Police Officers (SPO).

* Indian government had already cleared that terrorism and meetings won't go together.

Khan’s reaction came after Pak government said it is “deeply disappointed at the announcement made by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs in New Delhi today (21 September) about the cancellation of the meeting of the Foreign Ministers of India and Pakistan, which was to be held on the sidelines of UNGA in New York.”

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi showed his dismay for the way India first accepted their goodwill and then rejected it. Shah was to be the part of the meeting with Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj.

"We were of the view that everyone will benefit if we sit together and solve our issues... They first agreed but later had to find excuses to reject our proposal. In the month of September, they named an action taken in the month of July as the reason, which was inappropriate," Qureshi stated.

Pakistani Information and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Hussain also took a dig and said that he had “never seen such a puerile (childish) statement given by any Foreign Office”.
