LAHORE: Both Pakistan and India should follow the policy of peaceful coexistence and compete only in the field of economy and trade to bring prosperity to their people.
Interim Chief Minister Najam Sethi expressed these views on Wednesday during a meeting with Indian High Commissioner Sharat Sabharwal who called on him at CM’s Secretariat, according to a handout.
Mr Sethi said Pakistan and India being neighbours would have to follow the policy of peaceful coexistence. He said the both countries should resolve their bilateral issues through meaningful dialogue as wars gave nothing except poverty, price-hike, hunger and devastation to the two countries.
He said there was a need for the two countries to spend their resources on progress and development of their peoples.
The chief minister said both countries should take solid measures to increase bilateral trade, adding that exchange of trade, cultural and social delegations could also help improve their bilateral ties.
