Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif hailing the resumption of India-Pakistan dialogue and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s gesture of visiting Lahore on his way back from Afghanistan last week, has said that it is high time the countries put aside their hostilities.

On last Friday, PM Modi made his first visit to Pakistan since taking office in 2014 and the ‘spontaneous’ visit, as per government sources, happened after Modi had called up Sharif to wish him on his birthday.

Sharif had received PM Modi at the airport, greeted him with a hug and took him off in a chopper to his ancestral home near Lahore, where the two held talks for an hour. Modi had tweeted that he was greatly touched by the gestures of Sharif.

Accordingly, Sharif’s grand-daughter’s wedding was scheduled the next day during which he wore PM Modi’s gift, a pink turban.

While many welcome the radical approach to ties with Pakistan away from the media glare and politics, the opposition has been deeply critical.
