“I heard there was a lot of criticism of Sidhu when he went back after my oath-taking ceremony. I don’t know why he was criticized,” the honorable Prime Minister of Pakistan said.

“He was just talking about peace and brotherhood. He can come and contest election here in Pakistan’s Punjab, he’ll win,” the PM added.

“It is foolish for anyone to think there can be war between two nuclear-armed countries as there is no winning for anyone. So, if there can be no war then what other way is there other than friendship?” he further added.
“If India takes one step forward then we will take two steps forward toward friendship. I the prime minister, my political party, the rest of our political parties, our army, all our institutions are all on one page. We want to move forward,” Khan said.

 

Conveying his gratitude towards Prime Minister of his arch rival country, Sidhu said, “The Kartarpur Spirit can make pilgrims of us all, venturing out on a journey that breaks the barriers of history and opens the borders of the heart and the mind. A journey that our people can walk together towards, a future of shared peace and prosperity for India and Pakistan.”
