Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in his Twitter message on the Pakistan Day, peace and prosperity is needed in the region.
He said, “I extend my greetings and best wishes to the people of Pakistan on the National Day of Pakistan. It is time that ppl of Sub-continent work together for a democratic, peaceful, progressive & prosperous region, in an atmosphere free of terror and violence.”
Imran Khan said in a reply Tweet, a comprehensive dialogue must be held on all issues.
The two arch-rival neighbours were closer to war as tensions escalated between the two countries following an attack on Indian security forces in Pulwama district in Indian-held Kashmir.
The Indian Air Force (IAF) violated Pakistan’s airspace on Feb.26, hit the alleged hideout of a militant organization Jaish-e-Mohammed in Balakot dropping bombs.
Pakistan responded by shooting down two Indian air force planes in Indian occupied Kashmir a day later and capturing Indian and Israeli pilots.
