Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has on Sunday said India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi should need to “give peace a chance” and further assured to take strong actions against the Pulwama terror attack on CRPF personnel if India offers Islamabad with “actionable intelligence”.

Khan has on Sunday said, “Prime Minister Modi should give peace a chance,” according to the Dawn news reports.
While recalling his 2015 meeting with Modi, Khan stated: “In my meeting with PM Modi in December 2015, we had agreed that since poverty alleviation is a priority for our region, we would not allow any terrorist incident to derail peace efforts, however long before Pulwama, these efforts were derailed in September 2018.”
Some days back, in a video message, Khan has said that Islamabad has “sincerely offered” investigation into the Pulwama incident and asserted that further based on a probe or “any tangible evidence”, we will take actions perpetrator found using our soil for terror attacks.
Meanwhile, Pak’s foreign office expressed deep concern over the Petitioners’ hearing in the Supreme Court challenging the constitutional validity of the Article 35A of the constitution.
