Islamabad, Feb 26 (ANI): Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that Pakistan and India will have to develop peaceful relations and make efforts to resolve all outstanding issues between the two countries, including Kashmir.
At a luncheon hosted in honour of Indian Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar at the Chief Minister's Secretariat on Saturday, Sharif said that both countries would have made much progress if mutual issues had been resolved through dialogue and resources had been spent on the welfare and development of the masses instead of wasting these on wars, the Daily Times reports.
He said that it was high time for both countries to give up confrontation and follow a peace process.
He said that had the democratic process continued in Pakistan, solid progress could have been made towards finding a solution over controversial issues related to Kashmir, ater and many others.
He insisted that people in India and Pakistan should compete in education, science, art and other fields and resolve their outstanding problems in a peaceful manner, instead of indulging in an arms race.
Sharif further said that the destiny of the region could be changed only if the two countries concentrated on the prosperity of their people. (ANI)
