It came after Khan wrote to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi calling for a resumption of talks between the nuclear-armed foes. He also compared the Indian leadership to "small men occupying big offices who do not have the vision to see the larger picture".

India said the killing of the three policemen had exposed the "true face" of Imran Khan.

India on Friday called off the proposed meeting between External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mahmood Qureshi, in NY, citing the "brutal" killing of three policemen in Jammu and Kashmir as well as the release of postal stamps "glorifying" Kashmiri militant Burhan Wani.

Pakistan Prime Minister's reaction has come almost 24 hours after Inda's called off the proposed foreign ministry-level talks with Pakistan blaming the country for the killing of three soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir's Shopian district.

"We have noted relevant reports and we welcome the positive remarks made by the Indian and Pakistani leaders on improving bilateral relations", Lu said while replying to a question on the statements made by the two leaders.

It also expressed displeasure over Islamabad releasing 20 special stamps featuring dead Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist Burhan Wani under the pretext of expressing "solidarity with Kashmir".

It strongly denied Pakistan's link to the alleged cross-border attack, saying it happened two days before New Delhi agreed to hold the meeting and both sides were already aware and in contact about it.

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

"When the allegations of Pakistan's involvement first appeared, the Pakistan Rangers clearly conveyed to BSF through official channels that Pakistan had nothing to do with it. Pakistan Rangers also extended help in efforts to locate the soldier's body", said the FO statement issued on Friday night. "India should not resort to war mongering", he said.
