ISLAMABAD: Pak­istan is hope­ful there will be a bet­ter en­vi­ron­ment to pur­sue peace talks with In­dia after the on­go­ing elec­tions in five states there are over, a min­is­ter has said. Plan­ning and De­vel­op­ment Min­is­ter Ahsan Iqbal, in an in­ter­view with the Voice of Amer­ica, said that by March the state polls would be over and there would be a bet­ter en­vi­ron­ment to pur­sue peace talks. “In our elec­tions, In­dia is not an is­sue, no­body does any In­dia-bash­ing, but some­how we feel that the poll dy­nam­ics in In­dia are still quite sen­si­tive to Pak­istan-bash­ing...,” Iqbal said.—
