Imran has ‘bowled a googly’ at India: Pakistan foreign minister

Prime News, International (Islamabad), November 30:- Pakistan foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan “bowled a googly at India” by opening the Kartarpur Corridor. A report in Pakistan-based Geo News, country’s foreign minister made the remark at a ceremony in Islamabad to mark the first 100 days of Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government.

Further talking about the relationship with India, Qureshi said that the approach of Pakistan is “people-centric”, adding that “Pakistan will take two steps forward if India takes one”.

This comes two days after Imran Khan reached out to India during the ground-breaking ceremony of Kartarpur corridor. Khan said that both India and Pakistan had committed “mistakes” in the past, adding that the countries should not continue to “live in the past”.

The Pakistan Prime Minister had further said, “There is just one issue between us – Kashmir. Can’t we resolve it? The man has reached the Moon and we are not able to resolve one issue between us. All that is needed is political leadership with determination on both sides. There is no issue that cannot be resolved by dialogue.”

“Where Pakistan and India stand today, we have seen such a situation for 70 years now. We will stay stuck this way unless we break the shackles of the past and stop blaming each other. There have been mistakes on both sides. (But) We should not live in the past. It should be used to learn lessons,” said the Pakistan Prime Minister. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
