Srinagar: Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has issued a letter to India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday. The letter was written by Khan in response to Modi’s letter which was written by him earlier this month seeking to bring peace and security in the South Asian subcontinent.
The letter written by Khan aims to bring Modi to table to discuss terrorism. Appreciating Atal Bihari Vajayee’s efforts to bring peace in India and Pakistan, Khan wrote, “Vajpayee was the major proponent of a strong SAARC summit for building bridges and developing ties.”
Both the letters show the eagerness to discuss the stained relation between India and Pakistan and to involve in more constructive engagement between the two countries.
After the intense speculation on whether or not Sushma Swaraj, Foreign Minister, India is going to meet Mehmood Qureshi, Foreign Minister, Pakistan at the UNGA in New York later this month. Khan’s letter also acts as a first formal proposal made to Swaraj to discuss the foreign affairs of both the countries with Khan also assuring that this summit will offer an opportunity to Modi to visit Pakistan and to restart the stalled dialogue process.
The letter also seeks to ensure the effective coordination between India and Pakistan’s foreign affairs under the comprehensive dialogues on the issues including.
“Peace and Security, CBMs, Jammu and Kashmir, Siachin, Sir Creek, Wullar Barrage/Tulbul Navigation Project, Economic and Commercial Cooperation, Counter-terrorism, Narcotics Control, Humanitarian Issues, People-to-People Exchange and Religious Terrorism,” reads the letter.
People of both the countries welcomed this friendly initiative and thrive to bring peace in South Asian subcontinent.
