PM Sharif greets Modi on India’s Independence Day

NEW DELHI- Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif today greeted his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi on India’s 68th Independence Day.
Modi had also congratulated Pakistan on its Independence Day on August 14th.

PM Nawaz Sharif’s message was released in a statement by the Pakistan High Commission. “Prime Minister Sharif greets Prime Minister Modi on India’s Independence Day, wishing prosperity to the people of India,” read the statement. A friendly exchange of greetings between the two premiers follows a strong rebuttal by Pakistan when Modi accused Pakistan being involved in a ‘proxy
war’ against India.

Modi’s accusations were termed as “baseless rhetoric” by Pakistan’s Foreign Office. Foreign secretaries of India and Pakistan are scheduled to meet in Islamabad on August 25.
