Pakistan's High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit Monday said his country expected the BJP, which will lead the next government, to help push forward "the agenda of peace for development" between the two neighbours.

Speaking at a lunch organised by the Pakistan High Commission for members of the Press Club of India, he emphasised that the two neighbours had no option but to talk to each other in order to "normalise relations for their mutual benefit".

"People in both countries long for peace and prosperity. It is, therefore, mutually incumbent to spare no effort towards resolving all the bilateral differences and disputes," Basit said, adding he hoped that comprehensive bilateral engagement between the two countries would resume "sooner than later".
