While participating in ‘’Tonight with Moeed Pirzada’’ program, both criticized Pakistan’s current foreign Policy.

As the Pakistani High commission in India was aware of the fact that, Indian designs were against the diplomatic values. Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri said that Pakistan should only negotiate with India, if they are ready to do so, on equal basis. Indian Hegemony will not be tolerated and relations with India at the moment are very complicated. Senator Sherry Rehman said that India is aiming for a more aggressive posture towards its neighbors. Talks with India will be only conducive, if India accepts the fact that it cannot undermine Pakistan.
