In the wake of continued ceasefire violations of Line of control by India at various sectors, the Minister level meeting with India has failed. Prime Minister held number of meetings with cabinet members and with our military leadership to formalise the talks agenda for the upcoming visit of National Security Adviser of Pakistan to India. Our civil and military leadership unequivocally expressed their National resolve and decided to emphatically raise all pressing issues with India in the best national interest. The leadership has decided to take aggressive stance on the serious matters related to terrorism while adopting give-and-take approach on bilateral issues. Unanimity of approach on the side of leadership and their sincere devotion to best serve the national interest at international level is really appreciable.
