Tharoor was responding to a question on whether the election of Khan, a popular cricketer, as Pakistan's Prime Minister would see a "sporting spirit" coming into play between the two countries. On Wednesday, the United States specifically said that Pakistan based terror groups like Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Taiba, which operate in Kashmir, continue to pose a serious threat to the region. Let's talk and resolve all issues.

After Imran's letter to PM Modi, it was reported that Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj will meet her Pakistani counterpart on the sidelines of the upcoming United Nations General Assembly sessions in NY. "Foreign Minister hadn't stated Indian PM had made an offer of dialogue but had said that Indian PM in his letter to PM Imran Khan, had also mentioned something similar to what Foreign Minister elucidated earlier i.e. the way forward was only through constructive engagement", read Pakistan statement.

India has accepted the other proposal as its Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj and her Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi are expected to meet in NY on September 27.

Imran Khan wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

They said a development such as Pakistan moving ahead with the prosecution of those behind the 2008 Mumbai attacks would be proof of its sincerity in addressing India's concerns. We already have very good relationship with China; we need good relationship with Afghanistan and India.

I wish to thank you for your warm greetings and best wishes on my assumption of charge as the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
