Khan said he welcomed PM Modi’s message for the people of Pakistan.
“I welcome PM Modi’s message to our people. As we celebrate Pakistan Day, I believe it is time to begin a comprehensive dialogue with India to address & resolve all issues, esp the central issue of Kashmir, & forge a new relationship based on peace & prosperity for all our people,” Khan added.
Pakistan would celebrate the day today, however, the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi organised the event on Friday.
The government of India did not send any representative to the reception as Hurriyat leaders were also invited by Pakistan.
“We are very clear, any attempt by Pakistan High Commission or Pakistani leadership to engage with Hurriyat leaders will not be taken lightly,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said.
