Newly elected Pakistan’s Prime Minister offered to start talks with India in order to resolve long-running dissension between the countries. The announcement about the proposal was made on Tuesday and Prime Minister Imran Khan wanted to end the conflict including over the Kashmir region.

Two countries are Nuclear-armed rivals and the dispute between the nations started over decades ago. The Prime Minister Imran Khan was a former cricket player who was sworn in last week. Imran Khan tweeted that both countries should focus on lightening poverty in South Asia and he suggested to pursuing new trade agreements for them.

After he expressed the desire for talks the Indian Prime Minister congratulated Khan. After gaining independence from Britain in 1947, both countries have fought three wars. One of them in Kargil and two of them over Kashmir, a Himalayan region split between Indian and Pakistani control.

Pakistan’s new foreign minister, Shah Mahmood Qureshi stated that a cease-fire along the border was in the interest of both countries. Qureshi also acknowledged that Pakistan would insist on relations based on “respect and trust.”
