India is using Afghan soil to carry out attacks on Pakistan, Sartaj Aziz, Adviser to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on National Security and Foreign Affairs, claimed on Sunday.

Speaking on a >DawnNews programme , Faisla Awam Ka, he said, “India’s stance has been non-cooperative since the formation of the Modi-government.”

He added that the Indian involvement" had reduced after Pakistan and Afghanistan stepped up cooperation and agreed not to let their territory be used to launch attacks on the other.

“The stance of the previous governments in India was subtle, but the Modi-led government said that if Pakistan is to maintain good ties with India, then it should compromise on Kashmir,” he said.

He added that India wanted resumption of dialogue on its own terms “which were not acceptable to Pakistan.”
