Sharif had on May 26 said he was carrying a message of peace
Ahead of his meeting, Sharif had on Monday said he was carrying a message of peace and intends to pick up the threads with India's new leader Narendra Modi from where he and then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee left off in 1999.
Both governments have a strong mandate and this could help in "turning a new page in our relations", the Pakistan Prime Minister had said. Sharif's visit is seen as significant by political observers here given that hardline elements in Pakistan have expressed their unhappiness over his responding to the invitation positively.
Sources said it is expected that the Pakistan leader will also extend a formal invitation to Modi for a visit. Sharif will leave for Pakistan later in the day.
