Pakistan shifts stand on MFN status for India [cached]
Pakistan's commerce minister Humayun Akhtar Khan, who till recently insisted that Pakistan would consider progress in trade relations if there was progress in the dialogue process to resolve the Kashmir issue, in an interview to local daily ‘The Nation' on Tuesday linked the granting of MFN status to India taking steps to remove tariff and non-tariff barriers imposed on Pakistan's exports.
Answering a question that if India removed its tariff and non-tariff barriers will Pakistan grant it MFN status, he said, "Yes.
Elaborating, Mr Khan said, "India had given us MFN status but still the trade balance is in favour of India.India can send items included under the positive list to Pakistan and it shows that there is a problem due to which Pakistan's exports to India are not increasing."
In view of this, Pakistan felt that there should be a level playing field before it opened up to India, he said.
Mr Khan said during his recent visit, Kamal Nath again asked for grant of MFN status.
