Modi, Sharif likely to meet at SAARC summit in November: Government sources

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to meet Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at SAARC summit in November, sources said on Tuesday.

This comes after Pakistan’s National Security and Foreign Affairs Advisor Sartaj Aziz on Sunday admitted that the meeting between Pakistan High Commissioner to India, Abdul Basit and Kashmiri separatist leaders was badly timed.

“In this case perhaps, the timing was not right because the discussion on Kashmir was yet to start,” Aziz said.

The foreign secretary level talks between the two countries were cancelled in August when Basit met Kashmiri separatist leaders in Delhi despite a warning from India against it.
