    Finance Minister, Ishaq Dar said Monday that there was no immediate recommendation being considered to grant India the status of most favoured nation (MFN).

    Speaking in a TV talk show Dar said there was a need to normalise relations with India on a number of issues. “There is no immediate consideration to grant India MFN status.”

    Relations between the two South Asian neighbours have been strained after India accused the Pakistan army of killing five soldiers at the Line of Control (LoC). The accusation was rejected by Pakistan.

    Over the last few days, India has repeatedly violated the ceasefire agreement with Pakistan by opening unprovoked fire and several different sectors along the LoC. Pakistan has expressed concern over these violations by summoning the Indian Deputy High Commissioner to Pakistan to the Foreign Office.
