Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Saturday that he was disappointed at India’s arrogant and negative response to his call for resumption of peace dialogue between the two countries.

“Disappointed at the arrogant and negative response by India to my call for resumption of the peace dialogue,” PM Imran tweeted.

"However, all my life I have come across small men occupying big offices who do not have the vision to see the larger picture," he added.

On Thursday, the premier wrote a letter to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi and called for a resumption of dialogue between the two countries.

PM Imran had also called for a meeting between the foreign minister of the two countries on the sidelines of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session.

Hours after reports circulated regarding PM Imran's letter to Modi,  Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Raveesh Kumar confirmed that Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Sushma Swaraj would meet on the sidelines of the UNGA. 

Kumar, however, had not specified a date for the meeting but sources said that it was scheduled for September 27.

However, on Friday, the Indian MEA spokesperson announced the cancellation of the meeting, citing the alleged killing of three Indian police officers and a personnel of the Border Security Force (BSF) in Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK) as the reason.
