KARACHI: Chairman of National Business Group of FPCCI, President Pakistan Businessmen and Intellectuals Forum and All Karachi Industrial Alliance, and former provincial minister Mian Zahid Hussain on Wednesday said Russia and western countries continued to trade during high tensions during the cold war, therefore, we should also start trade with all the neighbours.

We should not compromise our principled stance but start business as the issue of Kashmir cannot be resolved unless Pakistan become a significant economic power so that no country including India will not risk relations with Islamabad, he said.

Mian Zahid Hussain said that all the diplomatic and political moves have failed to resolve the issue of Kashmir and war is out of options leaving economic ties the only option to improve things.

Talking to the business community, the veteran business leader said that political tensions have dragged SAARC region down with frictions between India and Pakistan as its core reason.
