Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday said the ideology of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has become the impediment to peaceful coexistence with India. Khan was responding to a question on whether “talks and terror can go hand in hand”.
“We can tell India that we [Pakistan] have been waiting for a long time to coexist as civilised neighbours…but what to do? the ideology of RSS has come in between,” said Khan, while evading a question on whether Pakistan has no control over the Taliban anymore.
Khan was in Tashkent for the Central-South Asia conference to discuss the “challenges and opportunities in Uzbekistan.” About 250 participants and 40 delegates from different countries are supposed to take part in the two-day conference. External affairs minister S Jaishankar is also in Tashkent for the high-level meeting.
