The two leaders held their first bilateral meeting on Modi’s first day of assuming office as India’s new Prime Minister this week.
During the meeting, Modi expressed hope that India- Pakistan relations would progress in the economic, cultural and political fields in the same manner that India’s ties with her other SAARC neighbours have progressed in recent years.
Sharif described the 45-minute meeting as “good and constructive” and “held in warm and cordial atmosphere.”
He read out a statement to media after his meeting which said that his government stands ready to discuss all issues between the two countries in a spirit of cooperation and sincerity.
