Islamabad: According to Geo News, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Hina Rabbani Khar on Thursday denied allegations of backdoor diplomacy with India, saying that at this point, there was no communication between the two nations.

After Senator Faisal Javed Khan of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) questioned whether Islamabad had altered its stance toward New Delhi, she responded.

During a question-and-answer period in the Senate, she categorically stated, “At this point, no dialogue is taking place between Pakistan and India.”

According to Khar, back channel diplomacy must take place if it is successful, but according to Geo News, “no backdoor diplomacy is currently taking place with India.”

Khar emphasised Pakistan’s commitment to bringing about peace, though. According to Geo News, she said that the opening of the Kartarpur Corridor set a good example and that similar procedures must continue.

She added that there had been a decrease in hostile incidents along the Line of Control and that Pakistan would not want bloodshed anywhere.

According to Geo News, the minister also said that no trade negotiations have taken place with India.

When it comes to the resumption of trade between India and Pakistan, Union Minister of State (MoS) for External Affairs V Muraleedharan stated earlier in August 2022 that there hasn’t been any progress since 2019.

In response to a question about whether there has been any movement toward resuming trade relations with Pakistan since 2019, the minister stated in his written response to Rajya Sabha: “Pakistan announced the suspension of bilateral trade with India in August 2019. In September 2019, Pakistan partially relaxed its trade embargo with India by allowing trade in a limited number of pharmaceutical products. Since then, there has been no advancement in the resumed trade with Pakistan.”

Pakistan’s interest in trade and engagement with India was highlighted by the country’s foreign minister, Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, in June. He claimed that Pakistan’s isolation on the international stage was a result of previous policies.

Notably, earlier PM Shehbaz stated that Pakistan has learned its lesson after three wars with India and stressed that it now wants peace with its neighbour in an interview with Dubai-based Al Arabiya TV.

“Let’s have serious and sincere discussions to resolve our major differences, like Kashmir, at the table, is my message to the Indian government and Prime Minister Modi. It is up to us whether we coexist peacefully and advance or fight and squander time and resources “said Sharif.

Pakistan’s Prime Minister stated in an interview with an Arabic news channel based in Dubai, “Three wars have been fought with India, and each one has increased the level of suffering, destitution, and unemployment among the populace. We want to coexist peacefully with India now that we have learned our lesson.”

The proscribed organisation Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), which had broken a ceasefire with the nation’s security forces late last year, is now carrying out more terrorist attacks in Pakistan, which is also grappling with a severe economic crisis, public discontent with the ruling regime due to the flour crisis and fuel shortage, among other things, and rising instances of political unrest.

In the meantime, India has officially invited all SCO members, including Pakistan, to the upcoming meeting of foreign ministers, which will take place in Goa from May 4–6, as well as Pakistani Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto.
