Islamabad: Emphasising on having a “peaceful neighbourhood”, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif today said his country is committed to engaging with India for the peaceful resolution of all outstanding issues, including Kashmir, through a sustained dialogue.
“We remain committed to reaching out to India and seeking peaceful resolution of all outstanding disputes, including Kashmir, through a sustained dialogue. We believe the main dynamic in South Asia should be cooperation, not confrontation,” Sharif said addressing the concluding session of Pakistan's Envoys Conference, focussed on the Middle East.
“The hopes and aspirations of one-fifth of humanity for a more hopeful future can be realised, only if we focus on accelerating our development, and harnessing our full potential,” Sharif said.
His comments came just days after the powerful army chief Gen Raheel Sharif raised the Kashmir issue, calling it Pakistan's “jugular vein”.
