Disclosing this here, an official spokesman said that Khan said both the countries shared linguistic, cultural and social ties but unfortunately the political barriers had drawn lines between the people due to religious fanaticism and
Both of them mutually agreed upon to promote peace, communal harmony and friendship between the two countries to script a new chapter of mutual trust and goodwill in the sub-continent, he said.
