Despite indications that Pakistan’s diplomatic relations with India are normal, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that no trade can be done with India under the current circumstances. Recently, his country’s Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) decided to allow them to import sugar, cotton and yarn from India. On Friday, Imran Khan held consultations with important members of the cabinet. He decided that no trade could be started with India under the existing circumstances. At the time, he demanded that India should come forward to solve the problem first. They need to review the unilateral and illegal move of August 5, 2019 to abolish the autonomy of Jammu and Kashmir and create a conducive environment. This was reported by online Dawn. Citing sources, the report further said that Imran Khan has directed the Commerce Ministry and its economic team to look for an alternative that is cheaper than importing sugar and garments from India.
According to sources, a number of proposals were made to the ECC. They make decisions from an economic and commercial point of view. The ECC considered these proposals and decided to allow the import of a number of products from India, including sugar, cotton and yarn. But before that the proposal was sent to the cabinet for final approval. After discussing it in the cabinet, Imran Khan postponed the decision or proposal and directed to review it immediately.
