“talk with pakistan when no cross-border terrorism”-Modi
New Delhi, May 9 (IANS) BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi on Thursday said talks with Pakistan cannot take place if there was cross-border terrorism, noting that for a reasonable discussion, "blasts and gunshots have to stop".
In an interview to Times Now news channel, Modi said if a country looks strong, even its neighbours will change and atmosphere will change.
Asked if talks and terror can continue in relation to Pakistan, Modi said: "Is it possible to have discussions amidst bomb blasts and gunshots?"
"Do you think it is possible to have a discussion amidst the deafening noise of bomb blasts and gunshots? So to have a reasonable discussion, first the blasts and gunshots have to stop. There can be no talks till all this comes to an end," he said.
Asked if he became prime minister and Pakistan does not change its stance on issues such as 26/11 trial and infiltration, Modi said there was no need to think negatively.
"Why do you think negative? If the country looks strong, then even its companions will change, neighbours will change and the atmosphere will change...If the country's government is strong, then the solutions will be found automatically," he said.
what makes him think Pakistanis are in a rush for "talks"
the real terrorism and root of terrorism is the occupation of Kashmir....Modi's chest-thumping statements will leave no room for even contemplation for peace talks of any kind. Hell - i dont even think there can be room for any policy once the right-wing fascist gets elected.any rise in violence in Kashmir could lead to very grave consquences 。巴基斯坦
dont get nervous!!all izz well!! 印度
cheeky it's just a reply to reporter's question!btw i wonder wat wrong u find in his statement...? or simply ur hate fr him...blinded you to see the obvious!!! 印度
talks are held when there is an Issue be it terrorism from both sides or any other pending issue. Those who think we dont want to talk because such issues are prevailing means they dont have will to solve these.
anyway lets wait for May 16th and then a year or two. only then his foreign policy features will be clear .巴基斯坦
In any case, what would be the outcome of talk?...............Nothing!! 印度
Oh and what outcome you expect ? 巴基斯坦
Nothing, as I already said; absolutely nothing.
Kashmir is our integral part, and terrorism is yours, and it will remain like that no matter how much we talk.印度
lolzzz Kashmir is disputed territory and we have Kashmiri Bhagat Singhs not terrorism 巴基斯坦
No Talks with India till two main issues of WATER and KASHMIR are resolved. Till then, NO TRADE no " Aman ki Basha " or any other such nonsense with HINDUSTAN巴基斯坦

That's why I said, talk will be futile, like 'dog chasing his tail in circles'. 印度
That mean Pakistan should never talk to india, since india is the mother of all illness in south asia. 巴基斯坦
