SAARC Summit: Nepal aims to thaw rift between Narendra Modi, Nawaz Sharif

Kathmandu, Nov 25: Amidst the 18th SAARC Summit, the Nepalese government is trying hard to organise bilateral talks between India and Pakistan.

India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif are in Nepal for the SAARC Summit. Ahead of the SAARC Summit, Modi said in a message that he was keen on having talks with his neighours.

Will Modi, Sharif talks materialise?

"Development of close relations with neighbours a keen priority," Modi said.

Nepal is trying to play peacemaker between the two countries and aims to end the tension between the leaders.

Meanwhile, the Nepalese Foreign Minister said that there are chances of Modi and Sharif meeting today. Nepal was informed that both Modi and Sharif have agreed to meet each other though there has been no official confirmation.

This will be the first meeting between the two leaders since May 16 when Sharif attended Modi's swearing-in ceremony. Their relationship had taken a sour turn after tensions on the border had increased.

When External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj was questioned on the possible meeting between the two leaders she said: "Wait for tomorrow."
