Pakistan: Not a good time to discuss improving ties after ‘historic thrashing’, PM mocks India

ISLAMABAD, 26 October 2021, (TON): A day after the historic defeat to the Indian cricket team in Dubai, Prime Minister Imran Khan has mocked New Delhi while discussing the economic benefits of improving ties with India by resolving the long-standing Kashmir dispute.

“I know after last night thrashing by the Pakistan team in the cricket match it’s not a very good time to talk about improving relations with India,” the premier said on Monday while referring to Green Shirts' historic win against India in the T20 World Cup.

The prime minister was addressing the Saudi-Pak Investment Forum organised in cooperation with the Saudi Ministry of Investment in Riyadh.

The Investment Forum was attended by senior representatives of the leading Saudi companies and entrepreneurs as well as Pakistani businessmen.

PM Imran said “Pakistan’s strategic location having two biggest markets in the neighbourhood and connectivity with Central Asia through Afghanistan provided a real opportunity to investors to take benefit.”

PM Imran said “if Islamabad and New Delhi resolve the Kashmir dispute in line with the UN resolutions both the nations can reap economic benefits of enhanced regional connectivity.”
