Responding to questions regarding media reports concerning Indian response to the congratulatory letters by the Prime Minister and Foreign Minister to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and External Affairs Minister Dr. S. Jaishankar on assumption of their respective offices, the Spokesperson cautioned against media speculation and underlined that it was an established diplomatic practice for the leadership to congratulate new office holders and for them to respond. Pakistan’s position on the way forward in Pakistan-India relations was clear and well-known and did not require repetition. The Spokesperson added that the vision of peace, progress and prosperity in South Asia could be advanced by peacefully resolving all outstanding disputes, including Jammu and Kashmir, and moving away from the dynamic of confrontation to cooperation.
