ISLAMABAD -- Prime Minister Imran Khan Tuesday (August 21) once again invited India to dialogue and pursue peace, calling it the "best way to alleviate poverty and uplift the people of the subcontinent".
"To move forward Pakistan and India must dialogue and resolve their conflicts incl Kashmir: The best way to alleviate poverty and uplift the people of the subcontinent is to resolve our differences through dialogue and start trading," he tweeted.
Newly appointed Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi a day earlier had made clear that he would pursue dialogue with India.
"Us coming to the table and talking peace is our only option. We need to stop the adventurism and come together. We know the issues are tough and will not be solved overnight, but we have to engage," Qureshi said.
"We cannot turn our cheek. Yes, we have outstanding issues. Kashmir is a reality; it is an issue that both our nations acknowledge," he said.
