Nisar calls for sincere efforts to resolve Pak-India issues

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Interior Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, on Tuesday, held a meeting with Pakistan’s envoy assigned to India; Sohail Mehmood and talked about relations amongst Pakistan and India and circumstances of the locale.

Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said that every effort by Islamabad has proved futile because of the absence of trust and tenacity with respect to New Delhi.

Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said that,

The dream of progress and prosperity of people of the two countries and development and peace in the region cannot be achieved till relations of Pakistan and India are free of mutual animosity and distrust.

He said it was essential for lasting peace in the region that sincere efforts be made from both sides to resolve longstanding issues between them.

He also added that it was unfortunate that every effort made by Pakistan proved futile due to lack of trust and stubbornness of the Indian government.

Chaudhry Nisar said the responsibility entrusted to the new ambassador was a challenge for him and expressed the hope that Sohail Mehmood would utilise all his capacity to fulfil his responsibilities and to protect the interests of Pakistan.
