Sansani: Pakistan's PM-elect Imran Khan offers to solve 'Kashmir issue' through dialogue

Updated 27 Jul 2018 08:42 AM

Pakistan is ready to improve its ties with India and his government would like the leaders of the two sides to resolve all disputes, including the "core issue" of Kashmir, through talks, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan said today, asserting that the blame game between the two neighbours, detrimental to the sub-continent, should stop.
"If they take one step towards us, we will take two, but at least (we) need a start," 65-year-old Khan said today in his first public address after leading his party to victory in the general elections held yesterday.
His party emerged as the single largest party in the National Assembly elections, amid rival political parties' claim of "blatant" rigging in the counting.
Khan, who is set to be the next prime minister of Pakistan, said Kashmir is the "core" issue between the two countries and it should be resolved through talks.
"I am a person who arguably knows the most people in India because of my days in cricket. We can resolve the poverty crisis in South East Asia. The biggest problem is Kashmir," he said, suggesting that the two sides should come to the table to resolve it.
"We want to improve our relations with India, if their leadership also wants it. This blame game that whatever goes wrong in Pakistan's Balochistan is because of India and vice versa brings us back to square one," he said.
"This is not how we will grow, and it is detrimental to the sub-continent," he added.
He said good India-Pakistan relations will be beneficial for the entire region and suggested to increase trade ties between the two neighbours.
The India-Pakistan ties nose-dived in recent years with no bilateral talks taking place.
