Lahore: On the occasion of Pakistan Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted his counterpart from Islamabad Nawaz Sharif and asserted that India remains committed to resolving bilateral disputes through peaceful dialogue.
According to Dawn, Prime Minister Modi in his message reiterated India’s desire to build good neighbourly relations with Pakistan.
“India remains firmly committed to resolving all outstanding issues with Pakistan through a peaceful bilateral dialogue in an atmosphere free from terrorism and violence,” he said.
The message comes as a development with both the nations taking steps to move ahead after the major seatback to bilateral ties caused by the Pathankot attack.
A team of Pakistani investigators is set to visit India from Sunday for collecting evidence related to the attack.
Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz delivered last week the invitation for Prime Minister Modi for the upcoming SAARC Summit, to be hosted by Pakistan, to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on the sidelines of a SAARC Foreign Ministers’ meeting in Nepal.
Prime Minister Modi is also expected to meet Sharif in Washington later this month on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit. (ANI)
