Pakistan PM to attend Indian inauguration for the first time

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan's prime minister will attend the inauguration of India's Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi, a first for the nuclear-armed rivals, his spokesman said Saturday.

 

Pakistan and India have a history of uneasy relations and they have fought three wars over the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir since
their independence from Britain in 1947. Saturday's decision by could signal a further easing of tensions.

 

A statement from Nawaz Sharif's office said the prime minister had been invited this week by New Delhi to attend the ceremony. Sharif already congratulated Modi over his Bharatiya Janata Party's landslide victory in the elections that concluded last week.

 

State-run Pakistan Television said Sharif also would meet with the Indian president during his visit. (AP)
