Both the nations are very important in the Asian subcontinent and we want that by having cordial relations India and Pakistan must boost exchanges in the field of education and trade.

When questioned why till now major issues have not been resolved between the two nations, Talpur said, "Dialogue is on and from there only solution will come."
