"Prime Minister Narendra Modi's India acts as if they are a regional superpower; we are a nuclear armed country and we know how to defend ourselves," a Pakistani english daily quoted Aziz as saying a day earlier.

"We also have evidence of Indian agency RAW's involvement in fueling terrorism in Pakistan," Aziz said, adding that while Pakistan has evidence of Indian involvement in terrorism, India on the other hand only has propaganda against Pakistan.

"Propaganda against Pakistan is more important for the Indians, rather than giving us evidence," the adviser stated. Aziz also said that India wants normalization on its own terms; it would like to talk about trade and connectivity but not much else.

On Sunday, the Pakistan government decided to cancel the planned meeting of national security advisors with India, citing New Delhi's refusal to allow an expanded agenda and a meeting with Kashmiri leaders.

The Indian external affairs ministry immediately termed the decision 'unfortunate' and tried to wash its hands of the controversy that led to the cancellation of the meeting by saying that it 'did not set any preconditions'.

The decision was announced after Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj virtually set a deadline for Pakistan to decide by midnight if it was ready to go ahead with the talks by agreeing not to meet the Kashmiri leaders and restricting the discussion to terrorism.
