Lahore: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif`s Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz has said it will not be fair to expect much from the talks next month between the foreign secretaries of Pakistan and India.
Speaking to Radio Pakistan about the possibility of peace between India and Pakistan, Aziz said it will not be fair to expect instant resolution of all issues between the two countries. He said, initially focus will be on reduction of tension and maintenance of calm on the Line of Control (LoC) to provide relief to the people living across the border.
Aziz added that in a meeting between Prime Ministers Sharif and Narendra Modi in Lahore, it was decided that the foreign secretaries of the two countries will meet in mid-January in Islamabad to decide details of dialogue on all issues.
To a question, he said promotion of good relations with all neighbours is the policy of Prime Minister Sharif as this is a pre-requisite to benefit from projects aimed at regional connectivity and resolution of energy crisis.
Prime Minister Modi in a surprise move visited Pakistan on Friday. This was the first visit by an Indian Prime Minister in 11 years.
