  • Navjot Singh Sidhu says his friend Imran Khan has sent message for peace between India and Pakistan

PM Imran was accompanied by Defence Minister Pervez Khattak, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Finance Minister Asad Umar, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and Minister of State for Interior Shaheryar Afridi.

Sidhu said the Kargil War took place after former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's 1999 visit, while the Pathankot attack in 2016 happened after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's return. US-Pakistan relations remain frosty due to a deep and longstanding trust deficit, but mindful of the country's alleged influence over the Taliban, the US has not imposed sanctions and continues to engage with its estranged ally despite the strained relations.

Earlier, the Japanese minister also held talks with Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and expressed his desire to further strengthen bilateral relations between Pakistan and Japan. "Pakistan and Iran have stood by each other in hard moments".

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday constituted an 18-member Economic Advisory Council and out of these 18 members 7 belong to government while 11 are from the private sector.

"Timely and proactive cooperation by Iran in providing such access facilitates implementation of the Additional Protocol and enhances confidence", it said. They reiterated their determination for lasting peace and stability in the country.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has asked the media organisations and his political rivals to wait for three months before criticising the decisions taken by the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

Khan's advisor on climate change Malik Amin Aslam said that trees were planted and distributed freely across the whole country with an objective to motivate the general public to make Pakistan greener.

Zarif also emphasized that the two neighboring countries of Iran and Pakistan should boost cooperation to counter any plot aimed at spreading Islamophobia.
