No mediation required between India, Pakistan, says Nalin Kohli

Vadodara, Oct 2: There is no need for third party intervention to resolve issues between India and Pakistan, BJP's national spokesperson Nalin Kohli said.

"Pakistan knows that it cannot deal with India on its own strength and that is why it is pleading to world powers. India cannot allow this to happen. India is firm on its stand that no such mediation should be allowed," he told mediapersons yesterday during his visit here.

Kohli presided over the 98th annual meeting of Federation of Gujarat Industries here.

India is for comprehensive relationship with the neighbouring country and wants Pakistan to stop supporting, abetting, sheltering terrorists and allowing to use their land for conducting terrorist attacks on Indian soil, he said.

Describing Indian Army's "surgical strike" on terrorists preparing to infiltrate from across the border as a pre-emptive action, the BJP leader said, "We are proud of the Indian Army and thank them for conducting a successful operation."
