PSK Common Man
He only was begging for talks and now acting as if India needs help of Pakistan.
You are sold out country, India is powerful country.
High ego of Pak leadership will not dge it's own interests.
India has told Pakistan that terror and talks will not go together. Now that Pakistan has decided that they will not talk to India, it means Pakistan will continue to aid and abet te rorm.
Who wants to have trade with terror nation you idiot
First of all no one from India asked them to restart trade, they themselves wanted to start trading with India. But within 24 hours they reversed the decision because of pressure from the ji di elements in the army and political parties. What has India got to do with the decision of resuming trade. Let them beg from China or trade with the te rorts.
We are also not interested to trade with beggars
India do not need any trade or talk with pakistan.let them bye cotton from Iran sugar from Brazil at 50 percent higher price
Take the middle finger Katora khan. Who cares if you don’t trade with India for next 70 yrs. Btw not sure whether Pakistan will ests for that long.
Begs a question ok why PM Modi was so keen on getting relations back to 'normal' with this bhikhmanga state of te rorm?
