Bagchi was asked about Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s recent statement in which he had said that if the Kashmir issue is resolved, both the countries may not need nuclear weapons. Relations between India and Pakistan had soured after the 2016 terror attack on the Pathankot air base by terror groups from the neighboring country. After the attack on an Indian Army camp in Uri, the relationship worsened. Since then, India has not been holding bilateral talks with Pakistan and has been consistently emphasizing that talks and terrorism cannot go hand in hand.
