SCO summit 2017: Nawaz Sharif, Modi exchange greetings

Astana, Kazakhstan (Web Desk): Pakistani Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi greeted each other  in Kazakhstan’s capital Astana during the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit, sources said on Friday.

According to details, the two prime ministers met on the sidelines of SCO summit where India and Pakistan are going to be inducted as full members of the bloc, in its first ever expansion since its inception in 2001.

Here, the two leaders met face to face after December 2015 when Modi made a surprise visit to Lahore to attend Sharif’s granddaughter’s wedding.
