While Pakistani forces continue to violate ceasefire in border areas of Jammu and Kashmir, a top leader of the neighbouring country has called for resumption of comprehensive peace talks between New Delhi and Islamabad. 

Brother of ousted Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and PML-N chief Shehbaz Sharif said that India and Pakistan should take a cue from the historic Singapore summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and restart the stalled dialogie process.  

"Ever since the start of Korean War, the two nations have been at odds with one another - both threatening to use military force with their nuclear arsenals facing each other," Sharif said. 

"If the United States and North Korea can return from the brink of a nuclear flashpoint, there is no reason why Pakistan and India cannot do the same, beginning with a dialogue on Kashmir," Shahbaz said said in a series of tweets. 

India has made it clear on a number of occasions that talks and terrorism can not go together. Both External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had recently reiterated that Pakistan must stop supporting terror groups from using its soil against India for any talks between the two nuclear neighbouring countries to resume.

A move to bring the dialogue process between the two nations back on track was derailed after a terror attack on Indian Air Force base at Pathankot in Punjab in January 2, 2016. The attack was carried out by Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).
