Lahore: PM Modi arrives at Nawaz Sharif’s residence.
The last visit to Pakistan by an Indian prime minister was in 2004 by Atal Bihari Vajpayee, whose 91st birthday fell today and who is credited with bringing about a thaw in relations with Islamabad.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today greeted his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif on his birthday and wished him good health.
“I wish the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mr Nawaz Sharif on his birthday and pray that he remains in wonderful health,” PM Modi, who is in Afghanistan, tweeted.
The relations between India and Pakistan witnessed some positive developments after chill for several months. The two countries recently decided to launch a comprehensive dialogue after Mr Modi and Mr Sharif met in Paris.
