"Disappointed at the arrogant and negative response by India to my call for resumption of the peace dialogue", PM Imran tweeted. In its clarification, it was cited that the evil agenda of Pakistan stands exposed.

New Delhi called it off Friday, a day after publicly confirming Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj would meet her Pakistani counterpart, Shah Mehmood Qureshi.

Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry did not reveal if Saudi Arabia would be loaning money to Pakistan to help top up its dwindling foreign currency reserves, but said he expected Saudi Arabia to invest in Pakistan in a major way.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has assured Saudi Arabia that his country will always stand with the Kingdom through hard times and will ensure its protection against attacks.

The Indian statement was scathing.

The Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) remarks came after Khan hit out at India for cancelling a meeting between the foreign ministers of the two countries on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in NY this month. "We choose not to further comment beyond saying that these comments are against all norms of civilised discourse and diplomatic communication", its foreign ministry spokesperson said in a statement. "In view of the changed situation, there will be no meeting between the foreign ministers of India and Pakistan in NY".

After Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan's visit this week to Saudi Arabia, his government announced on Thursday that the Gulf state had been invited to be the third investor in a key segment of the China-led Belt and Road Initiative.

Pakistan also recently issued postage stamps of Burhan Wani, a charismatic Kashmiri militant commander killed by Indian troops in July 2016, whose death sparked a wave of violent protests in the territory.

Before leaving for New York, Qureshi said on Saturday that he would raise the issue of Kashmir at the UNGA.

The newly-elected PM of Pakistan said the country was "ready to discuss terrorism". "As a common neighbour to Pakistan and India, China firmly supports the two sides to enhance dialogue increase mutual trust, properly handle and solve their differences", Lu said.
