New Delhi: Pakistan prime minister Imran Khan on Saturday said his country is ready for talks to resolve all outstanding issues, but asked India to create an “enabling environment” for further progress.
Fresh from a visit to Sri Lanka, Khan welcomed the restoration of ceasefire along the Line of Control on cross-border firing.
“I welcome restoration of the ceasefire along the LoC. The onus of creating an enabling environment for further progress rests with India,” he tweeted.
“We have always stood for peace & remain ready to move forward to resolve all outstanding issues through dialogue,” Khan said in another tweet.
India this week allowed the Pakistan prime minister’s aircraft to take the country’s airspace to go to Sri Lanka.
Khan’s statement follows Army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa’s call for resolving Kashmir issue “peacefully” earlier this month.
Khan, however, repeated the old demand that “India must take necessary steps to meet the long-standing demand & right of the Kashmiri people to self determination according to UNSC resolutions.”
