PM hopes India will mend its ways

Pakistan's new Prime Minister Imran Khan has written a letter to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, the Foreign Office said on Thursday, seeking to re-start the bilateral talks on key issues "challenging the relationship" including on terrorism and Kashmir.

On 22 August, China too, said that it was willing to play a "constructive role" in easing relations between India and Pakistan.

"Khan wrote that India and Pakistan should resolve all outstanding issues, including terrorism and Kashmir, through dialogue", Times of India reported. Foreign Affairs spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal, in a tweet, said that Khan was awaiting a formal response from India.

The Modi government though wants Islamabad to make the atmosphere conducive for any meaningful engagement by acting against terror groups looking to target India from Pakistan soil. Despite an anti-India rhetoric during his campaigns, Pakistan PM Imran Khan wants talks to resume between the two neighbours, and as first step, he is hoping that the foreign ministers of both countries can meet at the sidelines of United Nation General Assembly in NY in this month end.

According to reports, this is the first concrete step for resolution of differences between India and Pakistan since 2015, when Swaraj had attended a "Heart of Asia" conference in Islamabad. In the letter, Imran Khan has said that all sticky issues including Kashmir can be resolved through dialogue. On Wednesday, the USA specifically said that Pakistan based terror groups like Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Taiba, which operate in Kashmir, continue to pose a serious threat to the region. Several ministers have gone on record saying that they didn't expect things to change under Khan, not least because of his links with the Pakistan army.

"The Prime Minister has responded to PM Modi, in a positive spirit, reciprocating his sentiments".

Alice Wells, the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia. said that the USA had sent a two-pronged message to Pakistan: a desire to engage constructively and an emphasis on the need for Pakistan to implement its promises to fight all terrorist groups.

The two finance ministers spoke about "financial and economic cooperation" between the two countries, SPA said in a brief statement.
