Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday highlighted the need for improving ties with India, but cheekily said that after Pakistan's emphatic win against the latter in the T20 World Cup it was "not a good time" for such a conversation.


Addressing the Pakistan-Saudi Investment Forum in Riyadh, the premier spoke about Pakistan's growth potential and highlighted the country's youth and strategic location.


"We have two of the biggest markets in the world neighbouring us, through Afghanistan we have [access] to Central Asian markets.


"We have excellent relations with China, but if somehow we improve our relationship with India — I know after last night's thrashing by the Pakistan team in the cricket match, it's not a very good time to talk about improving relations with India," he said.


The prime minister's remarks come a day after Pakistan made history by defeating India for the first time in a World Cup fixture. The win was Pakistan's first in 13 World Cup matches (seven in the 50 over World Cup and six in the Twenty20 World Cup) dating back to 1992 in Australia.





Speaking in Riyadh, the premier said that the two countries had only one issue — Indian-occupied Kashmir, and urged for resolving it like "civilised" neighbours.


"It's all about human rights and the rights of the people of Kashmir for self-determination as guaranteed by the United Nations Security Council 72 years ago.


"If that right is given to them, we have no other problems. The two countries can live as civilised neighbours [...] just imagine the potential."


He said that India would gain access to Central Asia through Pakistan and in turn the latter would gain access to two huge markets.


"This is what I want to impress upon the Saudi business community, that circumstances never remain the same. They always change."


He said that the most successful business people are those who look ahead and take risks. "The ones who go on the trodden path never really become outstanding in any field, let alone business."


Once again highlighting Pakistan's strategic location, the prime minister said that Saudi businessmen could benefit from what the country has to offer.


He mentioned the Ravi Riverfront Urban Development Project and the Central Business District project and called for investors to invest in them.


He also mentioned another project along the River Indus with 300,000 acres of fertile land. He said that water was available, but a canal was required to water the land. "All we need is energy to lift that water in a canal and this whole area becomes cultivable."


He said that the project had immense opportunities for both the countries.


Concluding his speech, PM Imran said he wanted relations between the two countries to go to another level. "A level that will benefit both the countries.


"The advantages that Pakistan has are different to the advantages Saudi Arabia has. Therefore, if we come together, it will mutually benefit both the countries."


So should we lost the match for good relations with India??

Bottom line is that Pakistan can NEVER EVER have good relations with india NO MATTER WHAT. The very existence of Pakistan is an affront, an insult to india and indianism. The sooner people realise this the better.

That's history or few droplets after heavy rain .It is not a rocket science to realise what is good in long run.physical distances doesn't matter in globalised world . Neighborhood or not it's better to invest time and energy where you have scope for improvement.Distancing from hateful people is always good..And as far as security is concerned its China which is consuming larger part..

Thrashing is 10 wickets win! Something India has never had to face in WC matches! Learn to differentiate between losses and THRASHING - but you are an Indian so you don't have the IQ to differentiate!

We should not stoop too low to be on Indian level, we should show some class and treat the game as game......

@PanzerKiel @Blacklight @Rashid Mahmood
Excuse me but this is a war....not a game......having "class" means you'll probably lose. No such thing as "stooping low" when you're fighting a war.

So far, India has inflicted 50k+ Pakistani civilian casualties and 5k+ soldier casualties just through proxies. What has Pakistan done other than a few remarks on media, shooting down a Indian jet or killing few Indians on the LOC every other week?

If Pakistan and Pakistanis keep treating this like a game or a joke then it'll only embolden India. Like someone else said on this forum some time ago.....India might appear weak now but once the nazification completes. It'll be only a matter of time that it'll invade Pakistan.

Is Pakistan ready to sustain WWII era Soviet casualties, probably more than that seeing as there's nukes involved??
