Would Love To Debate With Modi on TV To Resolve Issues: Imran Khan
“India became a hostile country so trade with them became minimal.”
ISLAMABAD — Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan said on Tuesday he would like to have a televised debate with his Indian counterpart, Narendra Modi, to resolve differences between the two neighbours.
“I would love to debate with Narendra Modi on TV,” Khan told Russia Today in an interview, adding that it would be beneficial for the billion people in the subcontinent if differences could be resolved through debate.
“India became a hostile country so trade with them became minimal,” Khan said, stressing his government’s policy was to have trade relations with all countries.
Khan’s interview came on the eve of a visit to Moscow, where he will meet President Vladimir Putin — the first visit by a Pakistani leader to Russia in two decades.
The two-day visit for talks on economic cooperation was planned before the current crisis over Ukraine.
