New Delhi: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his Indian counterpart, Narendra Modi are most likely to meet on the sidelines of a summit in Russia this week. The two leaders will meet in the Russian city of Ufa, on the sidelines of a summit of the Shanghai Coperation organisation. The meeting is set to take place on 10th of July. Modi and Nawaz last met at the SAARC summit in Kathmandu last November, though they did not hold formal talks. Pakistan's Foreign Office spokesman Qazi Khalilullah last week said the two leaders may meet on the sidelines of the summit, but added there had been no formal contact between the two leaders regarding such a meeting. Meanwhile Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Cheng Guoping said ”...India and Pakistan's admission to the SCO will play an important role in the SCO's development, it will play a constructive role in pushing for the improvement of their bilateral relations.” It is the first time the grouping has expanded since 2001. The two countries will start the process of joining a security bloc led by China and Russia at this summit.
