India says it is ready for talks with Pakistan

India has finally signaled that it is ready for peace talks with Pakistan. 

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar have responded to letters sent by Prime Minister Imran Khan and Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi calling for dialogue on the issues being faced by the two countries.

Pakistan had invited India to talk about Kashmir, terrorism and other issues, according to diplomatic sources. The Pakistani leadership had said they were open to talks with India and had said renewed efforts would be made after the Indian election.

In the letter, PM Modi said India wants a cordial relationship with all countries in the region. He said India also wants peace and prosperity in the region.

It has always given importance to the nation’s peace and progress, it read. It called for dialogue between Pakistan and India to specially focus on ways to curb terrorism.

PM Khan sent the letter in June, soon after the Indian elections. He had sent two other letters to his Indian counterpart since taking office in August. In his latest letter, he called for a resolution to all the problems between the two countries, including Kashmir. He said talks between the two nations were the only solution to help both countries’ people overcome poverty and that it was important to work together for regional development.

PM Khan had also said the recently held SCO Summit in Bishkek was an opportunity to talk to India. Despite initially being rebuffed by India, which dismissed chances of the two meeting, both premiers shook hands and spoke on the sidelines of the SCO.

    No other solution other than Kashmir independence from Indian and if Kashmiris so desire annexation with Pakistan. That is all it would take for lasting peace…having said that, I I doubt this will be the outcome here knowing the heinous designs of India. Imran Khan NEEDS to know without a shadow of a doubt that that a lesser solution will NOT be acceptable to Pakistanis

    Good news but India’s intentions are still doubtful because they are avoiding the Kashmir issue and hiding behind the face of terrorism.
