Prime ministers of Pakistan and India are likely to visit London to watch cricket matches in the same week of June this year and the British officials are considering arranging a meeting between the two, a private TV channel reported on Friday.

Prime Minister Imran Khan is likely to visit London for three days and will watch at least two matches in which Pakistan will be playing. The report quoted a source in the PM House saying that no plan has been finalised so far but a London visit in June is part of the PM’s schedule.

It’s understood that British government officials are keen for both countries to reinitiate contact and take steps for reduction of tension which flared up massively in the recent months after the Pulwama incident. A new government in India will be in place by that time and Indian officials have indicated that either the new prime minister or the foreign minister will visit London to watch the matches. The report said that British officials working behind the scenes are looking at the possibility of arranging a meeting between the two sides and have already spoken to relevant authorities in both the countries.

Election trend so far suggests that Narendra Modi will win the election again, albeit with a reduced margin of victory. Though he has taken harsh stance against Pakistan during the election campaign to win hardline right-wing votes, but it’s hoped that Indian position of brinkmanship will change once the election fever is over and there will be calls from within Indian for constructive dialogue with Pakistan, the report said.
