No letter from Nawaz to Modi for meeting:Tasnim Aslam
14 November, 2014
ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Tasnim Aslam denied the reports that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif wrote a letter to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi for a meeting on the sidelines of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), being held this month.
The development, which follows the recent exchange of violent skirmishes at the Line of Control (LoC) and the Working Boundary between the armies of the South Asian neighbours, points to dim prospects of a meeting between the government heads of the two nuclear armed states. The two-day 18th SAARC summit is being held in Kathmandu, Nepal, on November 26.
"The report is completely baseless. No such letter has been written," Foreign Office spokesperson Tasnim Aslam responded to a query on whether the prime minister wrote a letter to his Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in the weekly media briefing.
