Islamabad, Sep 27: Pakistan has said it will not grant Most Favored Nation (MFN) status to India until Line of Control (LoC) tensions are resolved through a composite dialogue process based on mutual interests.
Minister of State for Education Balighur Rehman revealed the government’s decision in a statement in the National Assembly, the Express Tribune reports.
The statement comes after Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNA Arif Alvi advised the government to work on new strategy for promoting business relations with India.
The relations between the two nuclear neighbours have been strained since August 5 and 6 ceasefire violation in the Poonch district that led to the deaths of five Indian soldiers.
Since then Islamabad and New Delhi have been blaming each other for violating the ceasefire. (ANI)
