Press Release on Pakistan Foreign Minister's visit to India

June 05, 1999
New Delhi

The armed forces of India are continuing with their successful operation in pushing back the intrusion that has taken place into our side of the Line of Control in the Kargil sector. These operations will continue until the aggression committed against India is vacated. It is an objective that we will pursue unwaveringly and with the fullest determination.

As we have intimated earlier, we had received a proposal to schedule the visit of Pakistan Foreign Minister Mr. Sartaz Aziz to India on June 7, 1999. The Ministry of External Affairs has today informed the High Commission of Pakistan in New Delhi that the date is not convenient and we will revert to the Government of Pakistan shortly with alternative dates.
