On Pakistan’s Defence Day, PM Imran invokes ‘peaceful coexistence’ with neighbours

Posted on


On the occasion of Defence Day in Pakistan, Prime Minister Imran Khan and outgoing President Mamnoon Hussain once again said that the resolution of the Kashmir issue in light of United Nations resolutions is imperative for peace in the region, reported news agency Dawn.

“The people of Pakistan will leave no stone unturned in defending their motherland, while standing side by side with [the] valiant armed forces of the country,” he was quoted as saying.

Khan said Pakistan believes in peaceful coexistence and wants to promote mutual cooperation with other countries, including its neighbours, on the basis of equality, Radio Pakistan reported.

Earlier, during his first maiden address to the nation a day after his swearing in as the country’s 22nd premier, Khan identified Pakistan’s challenges on economic front, announced sweeping changes to bring austerity and revive stagnant economy.

He also lashed out at the previous PML-N government for the current debt crisis which has risen to Rs 28 trillion, saying the country had not been as indebted in its entire history as it has been in the last ten years.

“I have talked to all neighbours and Insha Allah, we will improve relations with all neighbours. Without peace (with neighbours) we cannot bring peace in Pakistan,” he said.

Khan, who made an extempore speech while taking help of notes, promised to start the change from his life.
