Khan’s letter was in response to PM Modi’s correspondence last week on the occasion of National Day of Pakistan. Modi, in his letter, had said that India desires “cordial relations with the people of Pakistan”. In his response dated March 29, Khan reciprocated the Indian prime minister’s sentiments.

“The people of Pakistan also desire peaceful, cooperative relations with all neighbours, including India,” Khan wrote. “We are convinced that durable peace and stability in South Asia is contingent upon resolving all outstanding issues between India and Pakistan, in particular, the Jammu & Kashmir dispute.”

“Creation of an enabling environment is imperative for a constructive and result-oriented dialogue,” the letter added.

The communication between Khan and Modi comes across as yet another positive step in the bilateral relations between India and Pakistan since the two countries reached a ceasefire agreement last month along the Line of Control after discussions between the director generals of military operations. The declaration reaffirms the commitment of both the countries made during the 2003 ceasefire agreement.

In his letter, the Pakistan PM also conveyed best wishes for the Indian people in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration,” he concluded.
