Ban on Trade with India to Be Lifted Soon by Pakistan

The trade embargo against India could be lifted soon, as recent communication between the two countries’ premiers appears to have thawed the icy bilateral ties.

On March 20, 2021, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi sent a message to Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, expressing his best wishes after PM Imran tested positive for COVID-19. PM Imran replied by thanking him, as well as all those who sent him well wishes.

On Pakistan Resolution Day, Modi also wrote Prime Minister Khan a letter in which he expressed India’s desire for cordial ties with “the citizens of Pakistan.” Pakistan has now imported life-saving medicines from India, following the suspension of trade with India in 2019.

“Since the recent thawing started, the Prime Minister has been in isolation being COVID positive,” he told a media outlet. I haven’t spoken with him because I don’t want to bother him. I sincerely hope that trade between India and the United States can resume. Politics and commerce should be kept separate.”
