Days after  giving his nod to the resumption of India and Pakistan cricket series likely in December in Sri Lanka. Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif  has once again played the peace card yet again. He has now said that  for sustainable peace, Pakistan is ready for dialogue with India without preconditions, Geo News reported.  He also said Pakistan intends to maintain friendly relations with all its neighbours, including India and Afghanistan.

It may be recalled Pakistan has been globally isolated off– late as its attempt to raise the Kashmir issue has fallen flat. The new desire to mend ties with India was indicated by  Sharif  when he met British Premier David Cameron on the sidelines of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in the Maltese capital .

Both also agreed to continue close collaboration in diverse fields, particularly in trade, investment and security.

Stating that Pakistan condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and was deeply saddened by the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, Sharif said Pakistan itself being victim of terrorism could feel the pain of the French.

Cameron lauded Pakistan’s efforts in eradication of militancy and extremism. According to The News International, Sharif’s statement came on the sidelines of Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in the Maltese capital.

Sharif and his British counterpart David Cameron agreed to continue close collaboration in diverse fields, particularly trade, investment and security. They expressed long-term commitment to work together for greater security and prosperity of their countries.

Sharif said Pakistan condemned terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and was deeply saddened by the recent terrorist attacks in Paris. He said Pakistan itself being a victim of terrorism could feel the pain of the French people.

This was the third time the two Prime Ministers met during the current year, with earlier meetings taking place in April and September respectively.
