Ready for dialogue with India on all issues, says PM Imran

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday said Pakistan always stood for peace and remained ready to move forward to resolve all outstanding issues with India through dialogue.

In a series of tweets, the Prime Minister congratulated the nation and saluted the armed forces on the second anniversary of the country’s response to India’s illegal, reckless military strikes against Pakistan.

“As a proud and confident nation, we responded with determined resolve at a time and place of our choosing,” he said.

Imran Khan said, “We also demonstrated to the world Pakistan’s responsible behaviour in the face of India’s irresponsible military brinkmanship, by returning the captured Indian pilot.”

He welcomed the restoration of the ceasefire between Pakistan and India along the Line of Control. “The onus of creating an enabling environment for further progress rests with India,” he said.

The Prime Minister stressed that India must take the necessary steps to meet the long-standing demand and right of the Kashmiri people to self-determination according to the United Nations Security Council resolutions.
