ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said it is important for both Pakistan and India to resolve all their outstanding issues, including the Kashmir dispute in order to ensure peace and stability in the region. 

Speaking to Pakistan's High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit, the premier said the country would like to have normal relations with India on basis of mutual respect and sovereign equality.

"India is an important neighbour for us," said the premier at the PM House.

The prime minister also reiterated that Pakistan wants to maintain good neighbourly relations with all countries in the region.

Basit called on PM Nawaz and briefed him on the status of Pakistan-India relations.

Just two days ago, the premier got his words across with a letter of felicitations for his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi on India's 66th Republic Day.
