Defence Minister says, will talk only on PoK if talks are held
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said that if talks are held with Pakistan, it will only be on Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK). The Defence Minister made this statement in Panchkula, where he flagged off party’s ‘Jan Ashirwad Yatra’ in the presence of Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.
Speaking on Article 370 and attempts made by Pakistan to internationalise the issue, Rajnath Singh said, “Article 370 was abrogated in Jammu and Kashmir for its development. Our neighbour is knocking doors of the international community saying India made a mistake. Talks with Pakistan will be held only if it stops supporting terror. If talks are held with Pak it will now be on PoK.”

The latest attack on Pakistan by the Defence Minister comes just days after he suggested that India’s nuclear weapon policy of ‘no first use’ might change depending upon “future circumstances”
