Prime minister of Pakistan Imran Khan

Kashmir is our only issue with India… ‘another cold war’ wouldn’t benefit anyone, Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan said

In an interview with China Global Television Network that was filmed during his recent trip to Beijing to attend the opening ceremony of the 2022 Winter Olympics. Mr. Khan expressed ‘another cold war’ wouldn’t benefit anyone.

During an interview, he was asked about Pakistan’s relations with China and the United States to which he replied that the world did not need “another Cold War”.

“The world should not go through a situation where it is divided into two camps, it does not benefit anyone. In fact, everyone suffers,” he said, adding that people benefit when there is a cooperation between countries.

He went on to say that Pakistan wanted to play the role that it had played in the 1970s when it was “instrumental” in bringing the two countries together.

“The famous visit of Dr. Henry Kissinger was organized by Pakistan,” he said, referring to the former US state secretary’s visit from Islamabad to Beijing in 1971.

“The only way I will get my people out of poverty is if we have economic well-being, which comes with stability and peace. If you have conflicts, the first thing that gets affected is your economy and that’s the last thing we want.” He added.

“Unfortunately, right now Pakistan’s problem, and I think to some extent China’s, is with our big neighbor India.” He said on the Pak-China relationship. He said that he firmly believed that all political differences should be resolved through dialogue, but lamented the fact that the Indian government was an “extreme nationalist” one.

“We find the Indian government difficult to move forward with, specifically because of Kashmir. Kashmir is our only issue with India and rather than trying to resolve that issue, India has made things worse.” Mr. Khan said.

He expressed the hope that the issue would be resolved sooner or later through political dialogue, reiterating the fact that Pak-China ties had brought stability to the region.
