‘Pakistan desire result-oriented dialogue’, PM Imran writes back to Indian PM

ISLAMABAD/ NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday replied back to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi’s letter expressing gratitude for the greetings on Pakistan Day.

In his reply to the recent letter from New Delhi, the premier thanked Modi, 70, and said the people of Pakistan also desire peaceful cooperative relations with all neighbours, including India.

Pakistan is convinced that durable peace and stability in South Asia is contingent upon resolving all outstanding issues between both sides, particularly in the Jammu and Kashmir issue. The creation of an enabling environment is imperative for a constructive and result-oriented dialogue, PM emphasised.

In his letter, the premier also conveyed best wishes for the Indian people in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

Concluding the letter, the Prime Minister mentioned that I also take this opportunity to convey our best wishes for the people of India in the fight against the covid-19 pandemic. Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.

Earlier on Pakistan Day, Indian PM Modi stated that an environment of trust, devoid of terror and hostility was crucial for bilateral ties between the two neighbour countries. He also wished PM Imran and the Pakistani people for dealing with the challenges of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

On the other hand, the development comes days after Prime Minister Imran Khan, while speaking in Islamabad Security Dialogue, mentioned that New Delhi would have to make the first move to normalise ties with Pakistan.
