Pak-India joint business council (PIJBC) would contribute to the efforts for long term, sustainable and mutually beneficial relationship between the neighbour states.
Noor Muhammad Kasuri one of the 15 member Council constituted by the Government of Pakistan, said this talking to Media.
He expressed confidence that the Council would play its role to facilitate the two states take future decisions while adopting a friendly approach towards each other.
“It would also help both the sides to resolve the issues like expansion of Iran-Pak gas pipeline project to India”, he expressed with optimism.
Noor M Kasuri, also chairman Pak India Business Council (PIBC), said people across the border have centuries old history of peaceful co-existence and time has come when both the countries chalk out 25-50 years friendship plan.
