Delhi Hinted at Modi-Imran Khan Meeting and India-Pakistan Dialogue?



Is Modi-Imran Khan Meeting and India-Pakistan Dialogue on Cards? For now, the Indian PM Narendra Modi wrote to Imran Khan to express India’s willingness to enhance India-Pakistan relations. After Imran Khan took oath as the Prime Minister of Pakistan on August 18, India sees an opportunity to bolster ties with Pakistan.

In the letter written to the newly elected Prime Minister of Pakistan, Narendra Modi wrote that India is looking forward to a meaningful and constructive dialogue with Pakistan to resolve issues.

As reported by the Press Trust of India, Narendra Modi also emphasised on the need to eliminate terror from South Asia. On Sunday, even Imran Khan stated that Islamabad will be more than happy to improve bilateral relations between India and Pakistan.

Will Narendra Modi-Imran Khan Meeting Take Place?

In recent years the bilateral relations between the two have largely remained suspended over a wide range of issues, terror being the first on the list. Now with a new government formed in Pakistan, India will be hoping that there can be meaningful dialogue with Pakistan as the dynamics of war and diplomatic relations are changing significantly. Both India and Pakistan are extending a hand of friendship towards each other but India maintains that terror and talks cannot go hand in hand.

Both India and Pakistan celebrated their 72nd Independence Day last week. The two neighbours have had simmered relations particularly after the attack on the Pathankot airbase for which India held Pakistan responsible. Pakistan sponsored terrorism in Kashmir is also an issue that has kept the wide gap between the two nations unresolved.

In his first public address after taking oath as the Prime Minister, Imran Khan stated that if India takes one step forward towards resolving issues, then Pakistan will take two steps in the same direction. He further added that Pakistan will look to resolve all the core issues with India including the Kashmir dispute.

Narendra Modi-Imran Khan Meeting will certainly take place, the question is how quickly can the back-channel diplomacy start to set the platform for another India-Pakistan Bilateral Dialogue.

No Modi-Imran Khan Meeting, Pakistan Clarifies

Meanwhile, Pakistan clarified that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had not “made an offer of a dialogue” in a letter to the new Pakistani PM Imran Khan. A Foreign Office spokesperson said this in a statement issued in response to a query regarding reports in a section of the Indian media.
