Pakistan wants meaningful dialogue with India: Nawaz Sharif

IANS 28 Nov 2014, 9:27:00 AM IST

Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday said that his country wants a meaningful dialogue with India on all issues, media reported.

Sharif said during an in-flight press briefing late night on his return from the 18th South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Summit in Nepal that Pakistan wants to discuss all issues including Kashmir with India through a proper dialogue, Dawn online reported.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi shook hands with his Pakistani counterpart Sharif, laughed and even patted him on the arm at the closing ceremony of the bloc's summit in Kathmandu on Thursday.

It is believed that Nepal Prime Minister Sushil Koirala had played a crucial role in ending the impasse between India and Pakistan during the retreat at Dhulikhel near the Kathmandu.

During the inaugural session of the summit on Wednesday, both the leaders hardly looked at each other and even failed to shake hands.
