Ready To Talk To India After LS Polls: Pak Min Fawad Chaudhry
New Delhi: Pakistan’s Information Minster Fawad Chaudhry on Tuesday said that Pakistan is ready to talk to India for the normalisation of bilateral relations after the completion of 2019 Lok Sabha Polls.
“Pakistan hopes the election process is completed peacefully and whichever government comes to power, we will sit with them and see how things can be moved forward. It is obvious that the atmosphere that developed post-Pulwama and the tensions are not in the interests of the people or the region,” Chaudhry said.
Interestingly, the statement of Fawad Chaudhry comes against the backdrop of foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi’s contention over the weekend that India was “hatching a new plan for aggression against Pakistan” during April 16-20.
India had dismissed Qureshi’s remarks as an attempt at “whipping up war hysteria” and a “call to Pakistan-based terrorists to undertake a terror attack”.
On Wednesday, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan had also shown support for PM Narendra Modi by saying that both the countries will have a better chance of settling the Kashmir dispute if PM Modi-led BJP government retains power.
Khan further said that if the Congress comes to power at the Centre then it might not start a dialogue with Pakistan on Kashmir as it will be scared of the opposition.
