The prime minister said that most Western nations and their media used human rights issues to advance their foreign policy goals rather than providing justice to victims. He said India’s attempts to counter China’s growing military and economic power were pointless, and that India would suffer as a result.
He addressed Kashmiris’ concerns about Pakistan returning to the discussion table with the India, saying that the Pakistani government will not engage in any negotiation with New Delhi until Indian Government reverses its August 5 decision to scrap Article 370.
