In a significant development, Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has called for an honest talk with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on various burning issues like Kashmir.

In an interview with Dubai-based Arabic news channel, Mr. Sharif made some interesting admissions, specifically about ‘learning lessons from three wars with India.’

“My message to the Indian leadership and Prime Minister Modi is that let’s sit down on the table and have serious and sincere talks to resolve our burning points like Kashmir,” Mr. Sharif said. The Pakistan Prime Minister further stated that both nations should live peacefully and progress or quarrel with each other.

“We have had three wars with India, and they have only brought more misery, poverty and unemployment to the people. We have learnt our lesson and we want to live in peace with India, provided we are able to resolve our genuine problems,” Mr. Sharif said.

Notably, Pakistan is currently battling with a severe economic crisis, public discontent against the ruling regime due to the flour crisis and fuel shortage. The Pakistan establishment is also facing rising instances of terror attacks by the proscribed outfit Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, which had ended a ceasefire with the country’s security forces last year.

India is our neighbour country, we are neighbours. Let’s be very blunt, even if we are not neighbours by choice, we are there for ever and it is up to us for us to live peacefully and progress or quarrel with each other and waste time and resources. This is up to us,” Mr. Sharif added.

The Pakistan Prime Minister also stated that his nation does not want to waste resources on bombs and ammunition in regards to Kashmir. “We are nuclear powers, armed to the teeth and if God forbids a war breaks out, who will live to tell what happened,” Mr. Sharif said.
