For that, Khan needed to isolate bilateral ties from Pakistan's terror policy, and India came forward with the ideal opportunity.
India, which is observing the 10th anniversary of one of the worst terrorist attacks in the country, has been pushing Pakistan to bring to justice the planners of the 2008 Mumbai attacks. "The moment Pakistan stops terrorist activities in India, bilateral dialogue can start".
"If we want to do what we want to do, which is concentrate on fixing poverty, institutions, we need peace in the region".
Pakistan's limitless capacity for treacherous behavior is matched only by India's bottomless ability to get surprised by it. India's outrage at being blindsided by Imran Khan and Pakistan army chief General Qamar Bajwa during the groundbreaking ceremony for Kartarpur Sahib corridor is in equal parts sad and amusing.
"Where Pakistan and India stand today, we have seen such a situation for 70 years now", Imran Khan said.
The Pakistani prime minister has said that India and Pakistan should learn lessons from the past to resolve the differences over Jammu and Kashmir while asserting that if India takes one step forward then Pakistan will take two steps forward toward friendship during the foundation laying ceremony of a pilgrimage corridor.
Sidhu, who attended the groundbreaking ceremony of the Kartarpur Corridor on the Pakistani side, said both the government should realise that they have to move forward.

Imran Khan in a recent interview to an English news channel has said that the consensus for talks with India should not be seen as desperation for talks while adding that he can't be blamed for the issues which his government has inherited in Pakistan with respect to New Delhi-Islamabad relations.
"I am happy when something is grounded in positive hope. He should have obeyed his CM who asked him to reconsider his decision of going to Pakistan", India media quoted Tarun as saying.
Sidhu described the Kartarpur Corridor as a major opportunity to open the hearts of the people in the two neighbouring countries.
The Sikh temple - also known as a Gurdwara - of Darbar Sahib is considered holy by the Sikh community.
Prime Minister Khan, who also appreciated the joy on the faces around him. I want good relationship with India.
The issue of Kartarpur Sahib came into focus after Sidhu visited Pakistan in August to attend the oath-taking ceremony of his cricketer-turned-politician friend Khan as prime minister of that country. It's important to underscore that the opening of the corridor is happening at a time when both countries are engaged in bitter mutual recriminations.
Many in India construed this statement as Pakistan's desire for a change in Indian leadership. A day earlier, Pakistan had "invited" India for SAARC summit, a double bluff considering the fact that neither is Islamabad in a position to do so having got blacklisted by several members, nor does India, need to be invited.
