A Pakistani media report claimed on Thursday that India has finally agreed to revive peace talks with Pakistan.
According to reports, The Express Tribune, in a report said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar have written to their Pakistani counterparts, Imran Khan and Shah Mehmood Qureshi, respectively in this connection.
The report quoted the letters as saying :“India wants peace and development in the region. India has always given priority to the development of people and peace. Pakistan has also lauded this gesture”.The letters said: “India is ready to hold talks with Pakistan and other countries in the region for the sake of regional peace and prosperity”.
