Pakistan desires friendly relations with all countries, including India, and the two sides should resolve all outstanding issues through dialogue, the senior-most Pakistani diplomat in New Delhi said on Tuesday.

Pakistan’s chargé d’affaires Aftab Hasan Khan made the remarks while addressing an event organised to mark Pakistan Day. The comments came against the backdrop of a thaw in bilateral relations after the armies of the two countries recommitted themselves to the 2003 ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) last month.

“Pakistan wants to have friendly relations with all countries including India,” Khan said, according to a statement issued by the Pakistan high commission.

“To achieve peace between Pakistan and India, both countries shall resolve all outstanding issues including [Jammu and Kashmir] through dialogue,” he said. Peace within South Asia is “inevitable” for the larger interest of the region, he added.
