Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has written to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi advocating for a “constructive and result-oriented dialogue”, the Dawn reported on Tuesday.
Khan’s letter was in response to Modi’s correspondence last week on the occasion of National Day of Pakistan. Modi, in his letter, had said that India desires “cordial relations with the people of Pakistan”. In his response dated March 29, Khan reciprocated the Indian prime minister’s sentiments.
“The people of Pakistan also desire peaceful, cooperative relations with all neighbours, including India,” Khan wrote. “We are convinced that durable peace and stability in South Asia is contingent upon resolving all outstanding issues between India and Pakistan, in particular the Jammu & Kashmir dispute.”
“Creation of an enabling environment is imperative for a constructive and result-oriented dialogue,” the letter added.
