Shehbaz Sharif, Prime Minister of Pakistan, urged Indian PM Narendra Modi to have Sincere talks over highly sensitive topics like Kashmir. During an interview with Al Arabiya TV, he noted that Pakistan learned its lesson after having three wars with India and now wants peace with its neighbour.
He said, “My message to PM Modi is to have sincere talks on the table to resolve our burning points like Kashmir. It’s our choice to make progress peacefully or fight each other, wasting time and essential resources.”
While interviewing with a Dubai-based news broadcaster, PM Sharif highlighted that Pakistan battled three wars with India. It brought nothing but poverty, misery and unemployment to the country.
He emphasised that Pakistan has learnt their lesson and wants peace with India. “It’s time to resolve our genuine problems”, said Sharif.
“India is a neighbouring country to us; we live next door. Let’s be clear: even if we don’t want to live next to each other, we are there forever, and it is up to us whether we choose to live peacefully or fight and waste time and resources. Sharif remarked in an interview with Al Arabiya we are responsible for that.
He also mentioned Kashmir, saying that while Pakistan wanted peace, what was occurring there needed to be stopped. The leader of Pakistan added that both nations had engineers, physicians, and talented workers. For both countries to develop, we want to use these resources for wealth and establish peace in the area.
Pakistan does not want to spend money on ammo and explosives. He emphasised the nuclear capabilities of both countries. Who will survive to relate to what happens if war breaks out? Asked Sharif.
In November of last year, India retaliated against Pakistan for bringing up the Kashmir conflict during a UN debate, calling it “desperate attempts to peddle falsehoods.”
“A representative of Pakistan has once again made inappropriate remarks to Jammu and Kashmir as we gather today to consider UNSC changes. In the right to reply during the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meeting, Pratik Mathur, Permanent Mission of India to the UN, stated that Jammu and Kashmir remain a fundamental and inalienable part of India.
He continued, “Pakistan’s desperate efforts to disseminate lies and a horrible history of abusing the sanctity of multilateral forums deserve common condemnation and possibly empathy as well.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the minister of foreign affairs for Pakistan, discussed alleged human rights abuses in Jammu and Kashmir. India responded to Pakistan’s allegations during a crucial UN General Assembly discussion on the UN Security Council.
