Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan on Friday lamented on Indian government’s behavior over bilateral and peace talks between two countries. While in an interaction with Indian journalists in the federal capital, he said that Pakistan has changed its mindset but Indian government’s response is not positive.
“Pakistan’s mindset has changed, but India’s hasn’t,” the premier said. “There’s no enmity between the people of the two countries; people to people relations could be improved.” “Pakistan’s approach is positive but India will have to bring change in its mindset,” the prime minister said. “We have given an open invitation to India and it is now up to them how they respond.” The one-sided game, however, could not continue for a long time and the Indian side would have to come forward in that regard, he added.
“Pakistan will continue to urge for holding talks in order to resolve issues between the two countries.” “We have done our bid to push for dialogue; now the onus is on India.” Imran said. “The two nuclear powers cannot afford another war.” Pakistan, he stressed, wants peace in the region. “Pakistan has suffered colossal losses both in men and material due to the war on terrorism,” the premier said. “Let me tell you, terrorism isn’t in the interest of Pakistan or India.”
On Kashmir, PM Imran said, “Even the issue of Kashmir could be resolved through dialogue, and went on to add that if India couldn’t do, it should at least do something for the people of Occupied Kashmir”.
