Better relations will benefit both India and Pakistan: Imran Khan

Imran Khan, cricketer-turned-politician and front-runner in the upcoming general elections in Pakistan has said that a better relationship between India and Pakistan will benefit both the countries.

In an interview published recently, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief said, “”If you have a good relationship with India, it opens up trade, and trade with a huge market. Both countries would benefit.”

Talking about Kashmir, Khan said that the whole Indian subcontinent is held hostage to the conflict. Taking a biased position to the conflict, he gave all credit to previous governments in Pakistan for attempting at making peace with India.

“The problem with India right now is the issue of Kashmir. I give full marks to Pakistan for trying to get proper, better relations. But I believe we should have peace with India as the whole subcontinent is held hostage to the Kashmir issue,” Khan said.

Khan was critical about the state of Pakistani economy and said it was on verge of bankruptcy. He added that there was an immediate need to address the concerns of trade of Pakistan.
