Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s official Twitter account tweeted twice on Tuesday afternoon to once again invite India to dialogue and pursue peace, terming it the “best way to alleviate poverty and uplift the people of the subcontinent”, according to a Dawn report.
The tweets, which included a note of gratitude to longtime friend Navjot Singh Sidhu for attending PM Khan’s inauguration on a special invitation, reiterated the new prime minister’s belief that “without peace our people cannot progress.
” Addressing sections of the Indian media, politicians and civil society who have been criticising Sidhu for visiting Pakistan, PM Khan said: “Those in India who targeted him [Sidhu] are doing a great disservice to peace in the subcontinent.
“He was an ambassador of peace and was given amazing love and affection by people of Pakistan,” the prime minister wrote.
“To move forward, Pakistan and India must dialogue and resolve their conflicts, including Kashmir,” the premier was quoted as saying.
“The best way to alleviate poverty and uplift the people of the subcontinent is to resolve our differences through dialogue and start trading.
