"We want to sort out this issue as soon as possible because it affects relations between the countries", Mahmood told reporters on the sidelines of an event organised to mark Pakistan's National Day in New Delhi.
Indian officials privately said that life had become "very difficult" for diplomats at the Indian High Commission in Islamabad.
Pakistani officials even released a video of such "harassment", in which a white auto is seen blocking their diplomat's vehicle in Delhi and people on motorcycles abusing and filming the occupants. "Building a future different from the past remains indispensible. I hope we can prove equal to the task and work purposefully to advance the worthy goals of honourable peace, equal security, and shared prosperity".
In this context, Mahmood also talked about Pakistan Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi's communication with his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi on the Republic Day in January where Abbasi had expressed the hope that the years to come would be different from the years gone by.
Hussain said in the successful launch of Zarb-e-Azb and Radd-ul-Fasad operations, the armed forces and the nation had given vast sacrifices and announced commencement of Tamgha-e-Azm to pay tribute to the law enforcement forces and armed forces. Mr Mahmood returned to New Delhi to host the celebrations, about a week after being recalled to Islamabad for consultations in the wake of the diplomatic row.
Speaking on the day's importance, High Commissioner Sohail Mahmood said that Pakistan believed in amity and called for improving bilateral ties.
The Pakistani envoy had been called back to Islamabad last week for urgent consultations in the wake of allegations by both countries that their respective mission officials were being harassed and intimidated by the other side. It was important to resolve all the outstanding issues including the J&K dispute peacefully through dialogue.
Mamnoon also said that the global scenario has changed, and now countries could not be coerced to tow the line of one particular country.
