The exchange of greetings came days after a war of words broke out following Modi’s comments that Pakistan was involved in a “proxy war” against India.
Pakistan had termed Modi’s comments as “baseless rhetoric” which was strongly criticised by External Affairs Ministry.
In a strong rebuttal, the External Affairs Ministry said terrorism was a “core concern” in its bilateral ties with Pakistan and its “tool kit” is not restricted in any manner to combat it effectively.
Foreign secretaries of India and Pakistan are scheduled to meet in Islamabad on August 25.
