Islamabad: Pakistan will invite Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the upcoming South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc) summit, local media reports said quoting Foreign Office official.
The 19th SAARC summit, which was scheduled to be held in Pakistan, was cancelled in 2016 after India boycotted the event.
Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Bhutan had also pulled out from the event.
Pakistan Foreign Office Spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal was quoted as saying by Dawn News that Prime Minister Imran Khan in his first address had said that if India took one step forward, Pakistan would take two.
He called the Kartarpur Corridor event as a ‘great success’ for the country.
Congress leader and former Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu on Tuesday arrived in Pakistan for the groundbreaking ceremony of the Kartarpur Corridor in Nankana Sahib.
Sidhu arrived in response to the invitation extended to him by Foreign Minister Shah Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi last week, Dawn News reported.
