War not an option. But tensions with India will continue: Pakistan PM

Civil-military relations are evolving PM

Former premier Nawaz Sharif received a visit from Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi at the Punjab House on Tuesday. "But war is not an option", said Abbasi on Saturday while addressing a conference on "Future of Pakistan 2017" at the London School of Economics' South Asia Centre.

"In a statement, DeM general secretary, Nahida Nasreen, said that the statement forms the historical base for the Kashmir issue".

The Pakistan PM while replying to a question about India-Pakistan relations, said, "Talks are the only way forward, without talks no quantum change is possible". We are always open to talks at any level and talks are the way forward. "But war is not an option".

Highlighting India's Cold Start Doctrine among recent developments, Abbasi said Pakistan had a "deterrent" in place. "The only solution is continued talks", the Pakistani leader noted. He also said that the idea of an independent Kashmir is unreal and neither India nor Pakistan support it.

Sources said the two discussed the ongoing situation in the country, party affairs and matters of the government. "The solution lies with the Security Council resolution that the people are given the right of determination", he said.

Earlier today, Nawaz, the president of the Pakistan Muslim League-N, appeared before the accountability court hearing three Supreme Court-directed corruption references against him. "Pakistan is a country fighting terror for the world... today we have to get rid of this menace and we are committed to fighting that menace".

He further added that US-Pak relationship should not be defined by Afghanistan alone. "Many believe terror emanates from Pakistan - that's a narrative that is totally wrong", he insisted.
