Imran hopes for 'resumption of talks' in meeting with Indian high commissionerArchive
PM-in-waiting Imran Khan on Friday pushed for the "resumption of talks between Pakistan and India" when the latter's High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria paid him a visit at his Banigala residence.
Bisaria's meeting with the PTI chairman took place in the presence of senior party leaders, including vice chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi, information secretary Fawad Chaudhary.
After the Indian diplomat congratulated Khan for his party's victory in last month's general elections, his host "expressed his grave concerns on the human rights violations in the occupied Kashmir".
"I hope that the Saarc leaders' conference will be held in Islamabad soon," Khan said.
Bisaria, too, hoped that a new chapter in the Pakistan-India relations would soon begin. "The telephonic conversation between Indian PM Narendra Modi and the PTI chairman has given birth to this new hope," he said.
"India is confident that relations with Pakistan will take a turn for the positive."
The high commission also presented to Khan a bat signed by the members of the Indian national cricket team.
