Pakistan looks forward to transform relations with Gulf countries into strategic partnership: PM
Islamabad : In reference to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s interview to Al Arabiya channel, the spokesman of the Prime Minister’s Office has said that the Prime Minister had consistently maintained that Pakistan and India must resolve their bilateral issues, especially the core issue of Jammu & Kashmir, through dialogue and peaceful means.
However the Prime Minister has repeatedly stated on record that talks can only take place after India had reversed its illegal action of August 5, 2019; without India’s revocation of this step, negotiations are not possible. The settlement of the Kashmir dispute must be in accordance with the UN resolutions & the aspirations of the people of Jammu & Kashmir.
The Spokesman said that the Prime Minister made this position very clear in his interview with Al Arabiya news channel during his recent visit to the UAE.
