Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday in a tweet, lashed out at India’s decision to cancel meeting with Pakistani foreign ministers. India called off meeting between External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and her Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi in New York. Khan wrote, “Disappointed at the arrogant & negative response by India to my call for resumption of the peace dialogue. However, all my life I have come across small men occupying big offices who do not have the vision to see the larger picture.”

Khan through his tweet insinuated that PM Narendra Modi lacked vision to see a larger picture. However, Indian foreign office refused to comment on Imran’s tweet. India called off the meeting with Pakistan by citing violence in Jammu & Kashmir, where Pakistan-backed terrorist groups brutally killed Indian policemen.

Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Raveesh Kumar in a press conference said, “The recent brutal killings of our security personnel by Pakistan-based entities and their recent release of a series of 20 postage stamps glorifying a terrorist and terrorism, confirm that Pakistan will not mend its ways.”
