PM Khan vows to help eliminate tensions in Muslim world

PM Khan vows to help eliminate tensions in Muslim world

"The Prime Minister has responded to PM Modi, in a positive spirit, reciprocating his sentiments". Let's talk and resolve all issues.

Addressing media in New Delhi, Raveesh Kumar, spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs said that the NY schedule is just a meeting and not 'talks or resumption of dialogue'.

This will be the first ministerial-level engagement with Pakistan under the new Imran Khan-led government. "We await formal response from India".

PM Imran has written a letter to his Indian counterpart and sought a resumption of dialogue between the two countries.

On Wednesday, the United States specifically said that Pakistan based terror groups like Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Taiba, which operate in Kashmir, continue to pose a serious threat to the region.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and his Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj will meet on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in NY later this month, said the Indian Ministry of External Affairs' spokesperson on Thursday.

Khan's letter was in response to PM Modi's communication to the former seeking a "meaning and constructive" engagement between the two countries.

Oil on deferred payments might also be offered by Saudi Arabia just like in the past when Pakistan had to face worldwide economic sanctions after carrying out the 1998 nuclear explosions.

Ever since Khan took office in August, there have been several interactions between the Indian and Pakistani prime ministers.

"Pakistan and India have an undeniably challenging relationship", he wrote. "The best way to alleviate poverty and uplift the people of the subcontinent is to resolve our differences through dialogue and start trading", he added.

Sharing intelligence to combat terrorism, strategic working groups have been formed and the two countries have a more inter-dependent security relationship, which remains unaffected by their ties with any other countries. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said the improvement and development of relations between India and Pakistan are quite important to regional peace, stability and prosperity.

"Saudi Arabia is the first country whom we have invited as third country partner in CPEC", Chaudhry said, referring to the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the Pakistan leg of China's vast Belt and Road infrastructure initiative.

Both the countries have not engaged in any dialogue since 2015.

In a tweet on its official handle, the PDP said, "Thank you PM @ImranKhanPTI for your positive gesture".
