The two leaders had a firm handshake and posed for photographers before heading towards the meeting room for talks at the ceremonial Hyderabad House.
Ahead of his meeting, Sharif had yesterday said he was carrying a message of peace and intends to pick up the threads with India’s new leader Narendra Modi from where he and then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee left off in 1999.
Both governments have a strong mandate and this could help in “turning a new page in our relations”, the Pakistan Prime Minister had said.
Sharif’s visit is seen as significant by political observers here given that hardline elements in Pakistan have expressed their unhappiness over his responding to the invitation positively.
Sharif left for Pakistan at 5 pm.
