Khan, the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI), has personally telephoned Sidhu to extend the invitation, according to the statement. "I really hope and appeal that we have a really handsome relationship henceforth".

Earlier, India's high commissioner in Pakistan Ajay Bisaria called on Khan and congratulated him on his victory. Prime minister Narendra Modi and India hoped for peace and development with its neighbour.

The India-Pakistan ties nose-dived in recent years with no bilateral talks taking place.

"Khan Sahab expressed the hope that the SAARC Summit would be held soon in Islamabad". An official source said Indian participation in the summit would ensure a visit by Prime Mr. Modi to Pakistan.

A delegation of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) met outgoing Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq to invite the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) to party chief Imran Khan's oath-taking ceremony.

ISLAMABAD: As the elected members of the National Assembly will take oath on August 13 on Monday, the National Assembly will elect the new prime minister on August 17. In his address to Pakistan, he said: "If India takes one step towards us, we will take two steps toward them...but at least (we) need a start".

India's comments followed remarks by Imran Khan on 26 July in which he said he wanted to have good relations with India and work to resolve all outstanding issues through dialogue.
