In a letter to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has called for creating an enabling environment for a “constructive and result-oriented dialogue.
Khan, who is recovering from Covid-19, sent the letter on Monday in response to Modi’s message of greetings on the occasion of Pakistan Day on March 23. The contents of Khan’s letter were confirmed by people familiar with developments in Islamabad.
“The people of Pakistan also desire peaceful, cooperative relations with all neighbours, including India. We are convinced that durable peace and stability in South Asia is contingent upon resolving all outstanding issues between India and Pakistan, in particular, the Jammu & Kashmir dispute,” Khan wrote.
“Creation of an enabling environment is imperative for a constructive and result-oriented dialogue,” he added.
There was no immediate response from Indian officials to Khan’s letter.
