Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif is predicted to have professional and scheduled meetings with the heads of major countries, including his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, via the center of subsequent month, according to diplomatic sources.
The conferences will take vicinity in the course of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit scheduled to be held on September 15 and sixteen in Samarkand, Uzbekistan, the historic and cultural center of Muslims.
The other regional leaders predicted to meet PM Shehbaz Sharif include country heads of China, Russia and Iran.
Diplomatic sources in the federal capital confirmed that Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari attended a meeting of the SCO FMs on July 28, where it was reflected in the decisions that all the heads of the member countries will take part in the summit meeting of the organisation in personal capacity.
“There are no plans of any meetings between Indian and Pakistani top ministers in September,” Bilawal advised WION News, adding that both India and Pakistan are part of the SCO and the two countries are solely engaged in the context of the broad-based activities of the organisation.
The foreign minister said: “India is our neighbouring country. While one can figure out on a lot of things, one can’t choose its neighbours, therefore, we must get used to living with them.”
Bilawal recalled that after 2019, constructive dialogue with India became difficult, whilst statements based on Islamophobia by Indian officials are similarly creating hurdles in dialogue.
