Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan said he thinks there may be a better chance of peace talks between India and Pakistan if Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) wins the general election due to begin there on Thursday.
Imran Khan said in an interview with foreign journalists that if the BJP wins then there can be some sort of agreement on the Kashmir issue.
Imran Khan said that if the next government in India is formed under the leadership of the Congress, then it might be too scared to seek a settlement with Pakistan over disputed Indian-controlled Kashmir, fearing a backlash from the right.
"Perhaps if the BJP - a right-wing party - wins, some kind of settlement in Kashmir could be reached," Khan told a small group of foreign journalists in an interview.
Imran Khan also accused India and Israil quoted saying both the countries have violated international law. Elections are going on in both countries this week. PM Modi and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu violated international law, UN Security Council resolutions and their constitution for votes.
