Cops killing aftermath: India cancels MEA level meeting with Pakistan

It cited "the latest brutal killings of our security personnel by Pakistan-based entities" and the recent release of postage stamps by Pakistan which it said glorified "a terrorist and terrorism".

"In view of the changed situation, there will be no meeting between the Foreign Ministers of India and Pakistan in NY", he added.

And on Friday 3 policemen were found dead after being abducted in Indian-administered Kashmir.

Doubts began to be raised yesterday about the talks when the brutal killing of a Border Security Force (BSF) came to light at the global border.

While there are no dates for Qureshi's visit, Swaraj will leave for NY on September 24, and both the foreign ministers will also meet at the SAARC foreign ministers lunch on September 27.

Khan's letter to Modi was delivered on Sept 17 and on the same a letter from Qureshi to Sushma Swaraj was handed over by the Pakistan High Commissioner in Delhi.

Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that he was very disappointed with India's decision to cancel the meeting. However, the Ministry of External Affairs in Delhi said on Friday that since the announcement, two "deeply disturbing" developments had taken place that led India to call off the meeting.

Shahidi shifted gears easily after largely remaining patient in his unbeaten and career-best knock which came off 118 balls. The next over saw another catch dropped - the game's fourth until that point - with the guilty party being Afridi himself.

India stressed the interaction between the officials did not mean peace talks had resumed.

In fact, India and Pakistan has not had any substantial dialogue since 2012. The death of the Indian border guard on Wednesday in Jammu provoked outrage, with India accusing Pakistani forces of mutilating his corpse.

India on Friday called off the meeting between external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and her Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi in NY, citing the killing of three policemen in Jammu and Kashmir as well as the release of postal stamps glorifying militant Burhan Wani, Times of India reported.

"This does not indicate any change in our policy on cross-border terrorism", said ministry spokesman Raveesh Kumar in New Delhi on Thursday.

"Time and again we have said that the atmosphere in the region is not conducive for this Summit", Kumar said.

"It seems that India is already preparing for its elections due in the country next year", Qureshi was quoted as saying by the Express Tribune. One of the issues that will come up during the discussions is India's demand for Pakistan to open up the Kartarpur Sahib gurdwara corridor for Sikh pilgrims from the Indian state of Punjab. India has been maintaining that it desires normal neighbourly ties with Islamabad but any meaningful discussion can be held only in a climate free of terror, hostility and violence.
