Pakistan reiterated its desire for peace in the region and its will to resolve all issues with India through dialogue, Radio Pakistan reported.

India has been taught a lesson, says Fawad Chaudhry

Speaking to the media representatives in front of the Parliament House in Islamabad, Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry stressed Pakistan always took lead for talks with India.

“If Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not responding positively to Pakistan's offers of dialogue, he is being exposed before the world, and it will also harm India,” said the minister.

Fawad said the people of Pakistan and India support peace in the region.

Referring to Prime Minister Imran Khan's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the ongoing Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit in Bishkek, he said, “The two countries have a lot of opportunities to cooperation in science and technology.”

The minister, while commenting on the national political scenario, added the opposition wishes to use the floor of the National Assembly to save its leaders, who have been facing various corruption cases.

After arrests in corruption cases, next step is to recover looted money: Fawad

“The NA Speaker was being pressurised to issue production orders of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari, who is in NAB detention,” said Fawad.

According to him, the speaker rightly sought an opinion of the law ministry in this regard.
