Indian PM Modi Hopes Pakistan's Imran Khan to Work for Peace

12 Aug 2018 The Killid Group

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi hopes Pakistan which often accused by neighbors India and Afghanistan of fomenting terrorism and supporting terrorist networks in the region will work towards creating a secure, stable and prosperous neighborhood.

In an interview to news agency ANI over the weekend, when asked if India was open to a dialogue with Pakistan's Imran Khan-led government and whether India would participate in the Saarc meet that Islamabad will host this year, Modi seemed to steer clear of any definite answers.

"I have always said that we wish to have good neighborly relations. We have also taken various initiatives in this regard. I recently congratulated Imran Khan on his victory in the elections. We hope that Pakistan would work for a safe, secure, stable and prosperous region, free from terror and violence," the prime minister said.

India-Pakistan peace talks stalled in 2013 and efforts to get them started have come to naught, mainly due to several terrorist attacks in India seen as perpetrated by Pakistan-based terrorist groups.
