Pakistan’s envoy makes statement for better ties with India


Pakistan’s High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit said on Tuesday that Islamabad was committed to improving ties with New Delhi amid renewed tensions between the two hyphenated but hostile neighbours, according to local media sources.

Speaking on the sidelines of an Eid Milan programme at Pakistan’s High Commission in the Indian capital, Basit said, “We all want all issues of importance between Pakistan and India to be discussed. We hope very soon our leaders will meet and resolve all issues of importance between our two nations.”

“I hope very soon we move from confrontation to cooperation. I want to assure you that our Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is committed to peace between our two nations,” he added.
