Abdullah says welcomes Pak’s ‘positive approach’ to improve ties with India

SRINAGAR: National Conference president Farooq Abdullah on Wednesday welcomed the “positive approach” of Pakistan’s leadership on resolving long-pending issues with India, saying it has rekindled the hope that the two countries can live with trust and friendship.

“I foresee a time when my colleagues, friends and family members move around without security. It is perhaps for that day, God has kept me going,” Abdullah said at the annual day celebrations of Sher-e-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences in Srinagar.

His comments come two days after Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, who completed 100 days as premier last week, said his Government enjoys unwavering support of the armed forces, an influential player in the country’s politics, particulary on matters of foreign policy. (AGENCIES)
