Pakistan invites Saudi Arabia to join China's Belt and Road corridor

India Cancels Talks With Pakistan

“Evil Agenda Of Pakistan Stands Exposed” India Cancels Talks With Pakistan

Pakistan Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Mohammed Faisal, confirming "engagement" with India to plan a bilateral meeting between Swaraj and Qureshi, said that no decision has been taken on the issue so far.

The New York meeting, once firmed up, would be the first meeting between the ministers of both sides since the swearing in of Mr. Khan.

When asked to comment on the possible implications of Pakistan's close ties with Saudi Arabia on Iran, the minister insisted that Islamabad considers Tehran an important country and neighbor, and hence wants friendly relationship with it. "We await a formal response from India", he said.

The newly-elected PM of Pakistan said the country was "ready to discuss terrorism".

PM Imran has written a letter to his Indian counterpart and sought a resumption of dialogue between the two countries.

Islamabad has invited Saudi Arabia to become the third partner in the Beijing-funded Belt and Road corridor of major infrastructure projects inside Pakistan, Pakistan's information minister said on Thursday.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and his Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj will meet on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in NY later this month, said the Indian Ministry of External Affairs' spokesperson on Thursday.

In the letter to Khan, Modi conveyed India's commitment to pursue "meaningful" and "constructive" engagement with Pakistan and emphasising the need to work for a terror-free South Asia. We have also conveyed our position to the global community.

Earlier in July, Modi had also telephoned Imran and congratulated him over his victory in the polls.

On August 1, Khan wrote on Twitter that Pakistan and India must hold talks to resolve their conflicts. "The best way to alleviate poverty and uplift the people of the subcontinent is to resolve our differences through dialogue and start trading", he tweeted.

Noting the upgrade in relations, thinktank RUSI recently reported that Pak-Saudi relations had entered the "strategic domain where both countries are fine with each in pursuing their own interests independently".

Responding to the development, Mehbooba Mufti's People's Democratic Party (PDP) expressed hope that PM Modi will reciprocate the offer of talks made by Imran Khan, saying dialogue was the only way out of the stalemate.
