Pakistan PM Imran Khan

"The government has focused on encouraging investment, increasing exports, incentivising overseas Pakistanis for sending remittances, and checking money laundering", the premier said. It's a great day for Sikh community of 120 million.

Amid the raging controversy surrounding Punjab cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu's visit to Pakistan, the cricketer-turned-politician has now landed in a soup after Khalistani leader Gopal Singh Chawla posted a photograph with the Congress leader on social media. "Imran is a great leader".

Following his election victory this summer, Mr Khan announced that for every "one step" India takes on improving relations, Pakistan would take "two". It will provide year round visa-free access to Sikh pilgrims from India after more than seven decades.

Imran had also said that the Kashmir issue can be solved and has alluded that Musharraf and Manmohan 4 point formula should be revided.

He reiterated there is complete consensus in Pakistan for developing better relations with India.

Vajpayee, who died on August 16, 2018 at the age of 93, after a prolonged illness, had made a significant diplomatic breakthrough that didn't last very long.

Replying to another question on President Donald Trump's tweets on stopping aid to Pakistan at a time when the USA is seeking its cooperation on Afghanistan, the State Department Spokesperson stressed the need for Islamabad to build confidence in bilateral relations. "Bilateral dialogue and the Kartarpur corridor are two different things", said Swaraj at a press conference in Hyderabad.
