PM 'disappointed' with Nawaz Sharif
New Delhi, Oct 24: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, after his visit to China, said he was disappointed with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif and asked him "even at this late hour" to recognise that what was happening on the LoC and International Border is not good for the two nations.

"Let me say I am disappointed because in the New York meeting (between them last month) there was a general agreement on both the sides that peace and tranquillity should be maintained on the border, LoC as well as IB and it has not happened. It has come to me as a big disappointment," he said.

"We had agreed at that time that if the ceasefire of 2003 has held ground for 10 years, then it could be made to hold later on also. That it has not happened is something which is really a disappointment," he said when asked whether he was disappointed with Sharif.

The Prime Minister returned home after concluding his three-day visit to China during which he held talks with the Chinese leadership and inked nine agreements, including a pact to defuse recurring border stand-offs.
