altJPNN/Islamabad/June 15, 2015/Adviser to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on National Security and Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on Monday underscored that Pakistan will not hold dialogue with India on her terms, adding that there can be no dialogue without the water issue and Kashmir as topics for discussion.Speaking to media representatives in Islamabad after an inauguration of the 10th meeting of heads of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc) countries, Aziz said

that even if cordial terms are not possible with India, Pakistan wants to maintain tension-free relations with her.Sartaj reiterated that Pakistan will take up India's anti-Pakistan statements with the United Nations' Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon.While addressing the convocation ceremony of 'National Security and War Course' at National Defence University in Islamabad on Monday, President Mamnoon condemned Indian propaganda against the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project, said a report published on Radio Pakistan.The president urged people not to over-react on the statements and stand by the government to rebut in a suitable manner. He reiterated that the nation must support the government and armed forces to overcome challenges.The President also said that other countries' reservations on the project are baseless and the government is focused on completing the corridor with all seriousness, as it is significant for Pakistan's future.Last week, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an address at Dhaka University blamed Pakistan for spreading terrorism and fear in neighbouring India.Earlier, Indian Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, in a shocking and radical statement, had asserted that terrorists have to be neutralised only through terrorists.“India will take proactive steps to prevent a 26/11 type attack,” Press Trust of India quoted him saying.Commenting on the shocking utterances of the Indian Defence Minister, a defence analyst said the statement was appalling and beyond comprehension.


The Senate last week passed a unanimous resolution strongly condemning recent provocative statements made by the top Indian leadership, including the threat of attacks on Pakistani territory.The resolution had said that the House emphasises that Pakistan would never allow its territory to be violated by India under any pretext, and that Pakistan's armed forces are capable of issuing a befitting response to any such incursion.The Upper House of Parliament had urged the international community to take notice of India's provocative statements, which did not bode well for regional peace and affected prospects of sovereignty and stability.During Indian Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar's visit to Pakistan in March, despite clear commitment from both sides to narrow divergences and build on convergences, there was no timeline given for resumption of bilateral engagement.“We’ll move when both sides are ready. We’ll remain in touch and see how and when to take the next step,” Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry had said while replying to a question and hastened to add that there was a need to seriously addressing each other’s concerns.

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
