New Delhi: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan wrote to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, seeking redemption of dialogue between the two countries. Khan also sought a meeting with external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and her Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. 

Khan’s letter is in response to the one PM Modi has written to him post his swearing-in ceremony, in which PM Modi urged for "meaningful and constructive" engagement between the two countries.

In his victory speech, Khan had said that Pakistan would respond with two steps to any step taken by India for normalisation of ties.

According to sources, in his letter, Khan called for resumption of the comprehensive bilateral dialogue process which was launched in December 2015 but couldn’t take off because of the Pathankot airbase attack.

Gen VK Singh, MoS for External Affairs, earlier this week said that nothing has changed in terms of terror against India from Pakistan on ground after Imran Khan took over as Prime Minister.
