IRNA — Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday once again invited India for talks and urged better sense should prevail.
Addressing the nation, the PM said “Pakistan has suffered casualties in the past so we offered to cooperate with India. Because terrorism is not in Pakistan’s interests,’ he added. ‘We had said that Pakistan would be forced to respond if India carried out aggression.’
“My question to the Indian government is that with the weapons you and we have can we have a miscalculation. If it escalates from here where will it go? It won’t be in Modi’s or my control. I once again invite you to dialogue. Let me say again that better sense should prevail. We should resolve our problems through dialogue,’ he asserted.
Relations between Pakistan and India have been tense since a suicide bombing in Indian-Kashmir killed over 40 Indian soldiers, with New Delhi blaming Pakistan of being complicit in the attack, a charge Islamabad has denied vehemently.
The international community has asked both countries to exercise restraint and make efforts to de-escalate tensions.
