India looking to reverse ban on Pakistani TV channels

India has told Pakistan that it will consider removing the ban on Pakistani TV channels in the country.

This comes after Pakistani foreign secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani's pitch last week proposing India allow transmission of not just Pakistan government (PTV) but also private channels, both news and non-news, the Times of India reports.

Jilani said all Indian channels are available in Pakistan and Islamabad has done nothing to impose restrictions on their telecast.

During talks between the two countries in India last week, Pakistanis told the Indian delegation, led by foreign secretary Ranjan Mathai, that if India wants to spruce up people-to-people contacts, it must allow Pakistani channels into Indian homes.

Both sides underlined the importance of friendly exchanges in building "a relationship of trust and friendship between the two countries".
