Prime Minister Narendra Modi sprang a surprise by announcing that he would meet his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Lahore on his way back from Afghanistan.
What the actual story is?
It will be the third meeting between the two prime ministers. PM Modi, who flew into Kabul on Friday morning for an unannounced visit to inaugurate Afghanistan’s new parliament built by India, made public his plans to meet Sharif on Twitter.
“Looking forward to meeting PM Nawaz Sharif in Lahore today afternoon, where I will drop by on my way back to Delhi,” PM Modi tweeted.
“I can confirm that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is arriving in Lahore,” Pakistani foreign ministry spokesman Qazi Khalilullah told state television.
