Nawaz accepts Modi’s invitation to attend swearing-in ceremony


ISLAMABAD: In a significant development, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has decided to attend the swearing-in ceremony of India’s new Prime Minister Narendra Modi , a foreign office official confirmed on Saturday.

Nawaz is among the leaders of South Asian countries invited to attend the oath-taking ceremony to be held in New Delhi on May 26.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader on May 21, in a bold move, invited Nawaz to his swearing-in ceremony. Modi is to take the oath as prime minister 10 days after a landslide win for the Hindu nationalist BJP which secured the first majority by a single party in 30 years.

This is the first time in the history of India that a Pakistani prime minister has been invited to the oath-taking ceremony of an Indian premier.
