Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has called for “serious and sincere talks” with Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi on “burning points like Kashmir.”

“My message to the Indian leadership and Prime Minister Modi is that let’s sit down on the table and have serious and sincere talks to resolve our burning points like Kashmir. It is up to us to live peacefully and make progress or quarrel with each other and waste time and resources,” Sharif said in an interview with Dubai-based Al Arabiya TV.

He said, “We have had three wars with India, and they have only brought more misery, poverty, and unemployment to the people.”

Sharif added that “Pakistan wants peace but what is happening in Kashmir should be stopped.”

The Pakistan leader in the interview that was also uploaded on Monday on the @AlArabiya_shows Twitter handle said that both the countries have engineers, doctors, and skilled labourers. “We want to utilise these assets for prosperity and to bring peace to the region so that both nations can grow.”

“Pakistan does not want to waste resources on bombs and ammunition. We are nuclear powers, armed to the teeth, and if God forbids, a war breaks out, who will live to tell what happened?” he said.
