Bishkek, June 14: Prime Minister Imran Khan has on Thursday reiterated calls for resolving the standoff issues between India and Pakistan via dialogue, what he believed the only way to resolve differences, during the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.
Amid rising tensions between two neighbouring nations, Khan told Sputnik in an interview on Thursday there is no other way both nations should think of resolving the issues through the military uprising, as per Radio Pakistan reports.
When asked opinion over international mediation in enhancing bilateral relations, the Pakistan PM stated the nation was looking for that as it believed “progress comes with peace and tensions with neighbours detract from resources that can be spent on human beings”.
According to the sources, Modi and Khan did not hold a meet and exchanged no views during the informal dinner hosted on the sidelines of the SCO summit by Kyrgyzstan President Sooronbay Jeenbekov.
Tensions between Pakistan and India have soared since Pakistan based and backed Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar claimed the responsibility of Pulwama terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir which claimed the lives of 44 CRPF personnel on February 14.
