Kulbhushan Jadhav issue: India retaliates, calls off security dialogue with Pakistan

The government on Friday called off talks between the two countries on maritime security which was scheduled for April 17. India officially conveyed to Pakistan+ that it wasn't prepared to host a delegation of Pakistan Maritime Security Agency+ (PMSA) which was supposed to travel to India on Sunday.

As first reported by TOI on March 27, the two countries had approved dialogue between PMSA and Indian Coast Guard in a sign that they were looking to break the stalemate caused by the attack last year on an Indian army camp in J&K's Uri+ . This, even as a formal start to the comprehensive bilateral dialogue launched in December 2015 remained out of question.

The defence ministry decided that it wasn't the time to discuss security with Pakistan when, defying all international norms, the neighbouring country had awarded death sentence to Jadhav.

The only engagement that the two countries have had until now this year has come in the form of Indus Water Commission talks for which an Indian delegation visited Islamabad.
