Imran planning to stay at Punjab House CM annexe after taking oath

Navjot Sidhu and Kapil Dev to grace their presence in Imran Khan’s oath-taking ceremony

"Wars can breed tragedies instead of facilitating resolution of conflicts", Khan was quoted as telling the Indian Prime Minister.

Chairman and PM-in-waiting Imran Khan on Friday pushed for the resumption of talks between Pakistan and India during a meeting with Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria at his Banigala residence.

When it comes to humanitarian issues, India and Pakistan are not so actively engaged, however, the government has responded positively to Pakistan's decision on the release of Indian prisoners and fishermen on 13th August on the eve of Imran Khan's swearing.

Hoover felicitated Khan over his party's victory in the July 25 general election.

Imran Khan, the former cricket star and chairman of the center-right Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, had faced a disqualification threat for stamping his ballot paper publicly - a violation of the elections rules.

Khan also expressed hope of Indian participation in the upcoming SAARC Summit, scheduled to be held in Islamabad soon.

Khan's PTI emerged as the single largest party with 116 seats, in the recently concluded National Assembly elections.

Senator Faisal Javed also tweeted that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party led by Khan has invited Indian cricketers Kapil Dev, Navjot Singh Sidhu and Sunil Gavaskar to attend the oath-taking ceremony of the cricketer-turned-politician.

"I am that Pakistani who believes that economy in South Asia could improve only after trade between India and Pakistan receives a boost", Khan had said, further adding that he would take "two steps" towards India, if the "first step comes from New Delhi".

Khan defeated former Pakistan prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi from the NA-53 seat by almost 49,000 votes. John Hoover said that the United States wants to strengthen the relationship with Pakistan.
