NEW DELHI – Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday decided that their foreign secretaries will be in touch and discuss a way forward on talks that have been suspended since January 2013.
India’s External Affairs Secretary Sujatha Singh confirmed to journalists that Modi has accepted invitation to visit Pakistan, but no dates have been revealed. “All SAARC leaders invited Prime Minister Modi to visit.
