Pakistan, India can’t live as enemies, says PM

ZHOB: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has invited India to hold dialogue with Pakistan on all issues, saying the two countries cannot live as enemies.

“Pakistan and India will have to resolve all issues amicably and in a comprehensive way,” he said while addressing a foundation stone-laying ceremony for the western route of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project here on Wednesday.

The route will cover Zhob-Mughal Kot (N-50) and Qila Saifullah-Wagum (N-70).

The prime minister said National Security Adviser Nasser Janjua had held meetings with Indian officials to discuss issues and conflicts between the two countries.

He said that during Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s visit to Islamabad it had been decided that the two countries would restart dialogue on all issues. “Pakistan and India will have to create a friendly environment to resolve their issues,” he said, adding that all disputes and conflicts anywhere in the world were resolved through talks.

In this context, he had a word of praise for US President Barack Obama over the nuclear deal with Iran. “Wisdom and tolerance help in resolving conflicts.”

The prime minister thanked his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi for visiting Lahore and spending some time with him.
