Islamabad: Pakistan won’t hold any more talks with India without Jammu and Kashmir on the agenda, it was reported on Saturday.

“The civil and military leadership has ruled out any talks with India without Kashmir on the agenda,” The Nation reported, a day after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif chaired a high-level meeting.

The meeting also decided “to fully help Afghan government in checking the movement of militants across the border”, it said.

Ahead of the meeting, army chief General Raheel Sharif held a one-on-one meeting with Sharif.

Informed sources were quoted as saying that the two leaders were unanimous that no dialogue should be held with India unless Kashmir issue was part of the agenda.

A foreign ministry official said Pakistan’s civil and military leadership was not ready to hold talks without Kashmir being discussed.

“India wants to exclude Kashmir from the agenda to make Kashmir irrelevant. We can’t betray Kashmiris. No talks with India can be complete without Kashmir,” the official said.

The decision comes after India said it was ready to hold talks with Pakistan but only on the terms that were agreed between prime ministers Nawaz Sharif and Narendra Modi in Ufa in Russia.

A British court has convicted a mother of forcing her daughter to marry a relative almost twice her age in Pakistan, in a first successful prosecution of its type in England.

A jury at Birmingham Crown Court on Tuesday convicted the mother of four of duping her then 17-year-old daughter into travelling to Pakistan on the pretext of a family holiday in 2016 and forcing her to marry there, the BBC reported.

The mother was found guilty of two counts of forced marriage and was scheduled to be sentenced.

The court heard the girl had been entered into a “marriage contract” with the man years before in Pakistan and became pregnant at 13. The victim had an abortion on returning to the UK, with her doctor reporting his concerns to social services.
