ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday called former Indian cricketer  Navjot Singh Sidhu ambassador of peace and said those who are targeting him for visiting Pakistan are doing great disservice to peace in the subcontinet.

"I want to thank Sidhu for coming to Pakistan for my oath taking. He was an ambassador of peace & was given amazing love & affection by ppl of Pakistan. Those in India who targeted him are doing a gt disservice to peace in the subcontinent," he said in Tweet.

"To move forward Pakistan and India must dialogue and resolve their conflicts including Kashmir," he said.
