"Building on the mutual desire for peace between our two countries, I wish to propose a meeting between Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi and External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, before the informal meeting of the SAARC foreign ministers at the sidelines of the upcoming UN General Assembly in New York", Khan wrote.

Three policemen were then found dead on Friday after being abducted in Indian-administered Kashmir.

"We believe by its ill-considered cancellation of the meeting, India has once again wasted a serious opportunity to change the dynamics of the bilateral relationship and put the region on the path of peace and development", Pakistan's ministry lamented.

However, Pakistan, in response, maintained that the "disturbing developments" referred to in the Indian statement predated the Indian agreement to hold the bilateral meeting in NY, and claimed that India's comments against Khan were "against all norms of civilised discourse and diplomatic communication".

India accepted the suggestion of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, who had written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi that the foreign ministers of the two countries could meet in NY to try and break an impasse in ties.

Pakistan refused to take the blame and lashed back out at India. Yesterday, Pakistan's foreign office too expressed disappointment at the cancelletion of talks, saying that the reasons cited by India were "entirely unconvincing".

But the Swiss champions' artificial pitch will take some getting used to, and was the reason why United left Antonio Valencia behind.

ISLAMABAD: In a sharp rebuke to Indian army chief's threatening remarks, Information and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Chaudhry said that India was using hate mongering against Pakistan to bail out Prime Minister Narendra Modi following calls for his resignation over a French deal.

The BJP, however, maintained that it has been the government's stand that talks and terror can not go together and asserted that the Indian Army will give Pakistan a befitting reply.

Hindustan Times, owned by HT Media Ltd, is one of India's largest publications that provides unbiased news, analysis and features on politics, sports, entertainment, lifestyle and more. "Permanent missions of both the countries will discuss on how and when the meeting will happen", said the spokesperson. "Now India has to move forward and we want that when Sikhs come to Pakistan on the 450 birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, they should be provided facilities through Kartarpura border".

Officials from the two countries were scheduled to meet in NY.

India retaliated by carrying out "surgical strikes" in September 2016 across the Line of Control (LoC).
