Hot Kashmir - Latest News Updates From Kashmir
Islamabad, May 24: Three days after he was invited, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Saturday announced that he will travel to New Delhi on May 26 to attend the swearing- in ceremony of Prime Minister-designate NarendraModi, following which he will hold bilateral talks. Sharif, who will reach New Delhi on Monday, would be accompanied by his Advisor on National Security and Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz, Special Assistant Tariq Fatemi and Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry among others. The announcement by the Prime Minister's Office today ended the suspense over Sharif's visit that was being opposed by certain quarters in the establishment here. The development came after Prime Minister's brother and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif met the Army chief Gen Raheel Sharif last night for about half-an-hour and conveyed to him the importance of the visit to India for maintaining good relations between the two countries and peace in the region, PML-N party sources told PTI.
