Indian, Pakistani Nobel prize winners ask leaders to embrace peace | The Indian Express

Indian Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi and Pakistan’s Malala Yousafzai on Tuesday said trust and friendship is key to sustainable peace in South Asia, as they asked the leaders of the two countries to embrace peace.

“Trust and friendship is important for sustainable peace between India and Pakistan,” 60-year-old Satyarthi told reporters here on the eve of annual award ceremony.

“For me, relationship between people of India and Pakistan is more important than the talks between the two Prime Ministers,” said Satyarthi, who shares this year’s Nobel Peace Prize with 17-year-old Malala.

He said he will try in India and Pakistan and even in other countries how the youth and children can together walk on the path of peace.
