ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said that Pakistan is interested in good relations with India but only on the basis of equality and mutual respect.

He shared these views in a meeting with Pakistan's High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit who called on the prime minister at the PM House on Wednesday 28.January,2015 and briefed him on the status of Pakistan-India relations in the wake of US President Barrack Obama's visit to India. The Prime Minister reiterated that Pakistan wants good neighbourly relations with all countries of the region. He said India is an important neighbour for us and we would like to have normal relations with the country on the basis of mutual respect and sovereign equality.

The prime minister said it is important that two countries resolve all their outstanding issues including Jammu and Kashmir in order to have viable peace in the region. Pakistan's high commissioner to India Abdul Basit was called to Islamabad on Wednesday for urgent consultation with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif regarding the evolving situation in the region after US President Obama's visit to Delhi. Sources told Daily Times that High Commissioner Abdul Basit has briefed top the leadership on recent developments in the region, including the US-India nuclear deal and its implications on strategic stability in South Asia.
