Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif meet with Manmohan in
NEW YORK : Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will meet his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh in New York at the hotel where Singh will stay during his US visit.
Both Singh and Sharif, who are in New York to attend the 68th session of the UN General Assembly, will be meeting at breakfast, which will be hosted by the Indian PM.
This will be the last major engagement of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif during his trip.
The meeting between the two prime ministers has attained conspicuous significance against the backdrop of tense ties between the two countries.
It could break the impasse spreading over two years in the relations of the neighbouring countries. Nawaz Sharif is viewed as a champion of peace with India and he would put his best efforts to bring about normalcy between the two nuclear countries.
PM Nawaz Sharif seeking to break the impasse spreading over two years in the relations of the neighbouring countries has called the meeting a chance for a “new beginning,” but Singh has tamped down expectations for the talks.
Speaking on Friday after a White House meeting with President Barack Obama, Singh said, “the epicentre of terror still remains focused in Pakistan.”
