Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has stressed upon the need of Pak-India negotiations to resolve the long-standing Kashmir issue.

“I think both the counties should resolve this dispute with dialogues,” Imran Khan spoke to reporters at Lahore airport upon his return from New Delhi.

"Kashmir is about people of Kashmir. What is best for them, India and Pakistan should look for," he said.

He said Kashmir was a problem and the two countries should solve it "as neighbours do across the table".

He was accompanied by Shah Mehmood Qureshi and other party leaders among scores of workers.

He also noted that cooperation between the two countries on issues like energy and food security was important and both could possibly have a joint civil-nuclear cooperation if his party comes to power.

Khan claimed both the countries had almost finalised the details of a deal on Kashmir that could have possibly put an end to the problem  in 2008 but the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai derailed the talks.

"What the two countries need is strong leadership that sells the idea that war was no option and make (people) understand the dividends of peace... we need to have leadership that tells war is no option," Imran Khan said.

He said cooperation between countries raises the living standards but admitted that relations between India and Pakistan cannot improve in the absence of trust. Imran Khan said there were lobbies interested in fanning hatred in the two countries. India and Pakistan should look for what was best for people of the state.

Qureshi said that Khan held interaction with Rahul Gandhi and other Indian politicians who applauded his ideology of ‘change’ and firmness in the struggle aimed at making Pakistan a sovereign and stabile country.
