Nisar, ambassador designate discuss Pakistan-India relations

Pak Ambassador designate to India Mr. Sohail Mehmood called on Interior Minister Ch. Nisar ALi Khan at Punjab House, Islamabad on May 30, 2017.

ISLAMABAD, May 30 (APP): Minister for Interior Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Tuesday held a meeting with Pakistan’s ambassador designate to India Sohail Mehmood here on Tuesday and discussed relations between Pakistan and India and situation of the region.
The Interior Minister said the dream of progress and prosperity of the
people of the two countries and development and peace in the region could not be achieved till relations of Pakistan and India were free of mutual animosity and distrust.
He said it was essential for lasting peace in the region that sincere
efforts should be made from both sides to resolve longstanding issues between them.
He said it was unfortunate that every effort made by Pakistan proved
futile due to lack of trust and stubbornness of the Indian government.
Chaudhry Nisar said the responsibility entrusted to the new
ambassador was a challenge for him and expressed the hope that Sohail Mehmood would utilise all his capacity to fulfill his responsibilities and to protect the interests of Pakistan.
