There is no bilateral meeting planned between the prime ministers of India and Pakistan at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization next week, India’s foreign ministry spokesman Rajeev Kumar said on Thursday.
India’s Narendra Modi and Pakistan’s Imran Khan are both scheduled to attend a meeting of the regional summit that is to take place in Kyrgyzstan on June 13-14.
Earlier despite Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan’s best wishes to Indian counterpart, Narendra Modi on his landslide electoral victory, it seems that Modi has not came out of his “Pakistan-bashing” trend, as India did not invite Pakistani Prime Minister to the swearing-in ceremony.
An Indian government hsd invited the leaders of Nepal, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Bhutan — all members of the little-known Bay of Bengal Initiative for Multi-Sectoral Technical and Economic Cooperation (BIMSTEC) to Modi’s swearing-in. The leaders of Kyrgyzstan and Mauritius were also been invited but two sources in Indian’s foreign ministry said Pakistan will not be on the list, without providing further information.
