Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that Kashmir is the only dispute Pakistan has with India and it can be resolved through dialogue.
Khan made the remarks during his trip to Colombo.
The Pak premier was addressing the Sri Lanka-Pakistan Trade and Investment Conference, which he co-chaired with his Sri Lankan counterpart Mahinda Rajapaksa. “Our [India-Pakistan] only dispute is Kashmir and it can only be resolved through dialogue,” Khan said.
“Immediately when I came into power, I approached our neighbour India and explained to Prime Minister Narendra Modi that the way forward for the subcontinent is to resolve our differences through dialogue,” Imran Khan claimed.
He went on to add, “I did not succeed but I am optimistic that eventually sense will prevail. The only way the subcontinent can tackle poverty is by improving trade relations.”
During his two-day visit to Sri Lanka, Pakistan PM Imran Khan also met Sri Lankan Muslim leaders, including Sri Lanka Muslim Congress leader Rauff Hakeem.
