Political crisis between India-Pakistan: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on foreign Affairs Tariq Fatemi stated on Tuesday that Pakistan is willing to talk with India on all matters.
“It is a reality that Prime Minister Nawaz desires cordial relations with India,” Fatemi said while addressing a seminar on ‘Pakistan India Relations – Emerging Relatives’ in Karachi.
The special assistant recalled that it was the PM who took the initiative to stage dialogue with India. Fatemi requested members of civil society to keep pushing the leadership of both sides to conduct dialogue process.
On this occasion, former Pakistan foreign minister Khurshid Mahmud Kasuri expressed saying: “not lost faith in the common sense of the people on both the sides and things will hopefully move in a positive direction.”
The former minister highlighted how vital it is for India to voice for peace with neighbouring countries, especially Pakistan, if it covets to act the role of a global leader.
“If Modi wishes to be successful, he needs to sit on the table with Pakistan,” added Kasuri.
Earlier, efforts to normalize crisis between the two sides disturbed after scheduled talks between the national security advisers (NSAs) of the two neighbours were annulled merely hours before Sartaj Aziz was ready to fly to New Delhi. The situation got worsen after last month’s Shiv Sena protests against Pakistan causing many Pakistani artists working in India to leave India.
