Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Thursday paid his condolence to former Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and said the best way to honour the "towering leader" is by establishing peace between India and Pakistan.

In a statement, Khan said Vajpayee was a known and respected political personality of the subcontinent and his attempts for the betterment of India-Pakistan relationship will always be remembered.

He added that Vajpayee, as a foreign minister, took the responsibility of improving India-Pakistan ties. In his efforts to bring peace between the two countries, Vajpayee had travelled to Lahore in the inaugural Delhi-Lahore bus service on February 19, 1999 to attend the Lahore Summit.
