Prime News, International (Islamabad), July 24:- Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan, who has emerged as the frontrunner ahead of the Pakistan general elections, scheduled for Wednesday, has batted for better relations with India. Speaking to WION, the cricketer-turned-politician said that better relations between India and Pakistan will boost trade and benefit both the countries.
“If you have a good relationship with India, it opens up trade, and trade with a huge market. Both countries would benefit,” said Imran Khan.
Making reference to the Kashmir dispute between the two countries, the PTI chief said that the whole Indian subcontinent is held hostage to the conflict. He, however, gave all credit to previous governments in Pakistan for making all attempts to ensure peace with India.
“The problem with India right now is the issue of Kashmir. I give full marks to Pakistan for trying to get proper, better relations. But I believe we should have peace with India as the whole subcontinent is held hostage to the Kashmir issue,” said the cricketer-turned-politician. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
