Let’s work together for durable peace: Pak PM Imran to PM Modi
New Delhi: Reaching out for the second time to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has urged his counterpart to “work together for a durable peace.”
The Indian Express reported that the letter arrived two days ago.
In his congratulatory letter to PM Modi, PM Imran mentioned working for durable peace and stability in South Asia and the peaceful resolution of all outstanding issues, including the Jammu and Kashmir dispute. This was preceded by the exchange of tweets by the two heads of state.
Sources confirmed that Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has also written to new External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, where he congratulated him and maintained similar views as Khan. Qureshi’s letter also arrived earlier this week, said sources.
This comes days before the two Prime Ministers are scheduled to be in the Kyrgyz Republic’s capital, Bishkek, for the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation summit on June 13 and 14.
The bilateral dialogue process has been suspended between the neighbours since the terror strike on Pathankot Air Force Station in January 2016.
