Pakistan is ready to improve its ties with India and his government would like the leaders of the two sides to resolve all disputes, including the “core issue” of Kashmir, through talks, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Imran Khan said on Thursday.

The blame game between the two countries, detrimental to the subcontinent, should stop, he said.

“If they take one step towards us, we will take two, but at least [we] need a start,” Mr. Khan said in his first public address after leading his party to victory in the general election held on Wednesday. “I am a person who arguably knows the most people in India because of my days in cricket. We can resolve the poverty crisis in Southeast Asia. The biggest problem is Kashmir,” he said.

“We want to improve our relations with India, if their leadership also wants it. This blame game that whatever goes wrong in Pakistan’s Balochistan is because of India and vice versa brings us back to square one,” he said. Mr. Khan favoured more trade between the two countries.
