Sharif, Modi meeting is quite possible: Pak media

A senior Pakistan official has said that the possibility of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif meeting soon is a possible reality. The relations between the two countries which are always on the fringe have strained in the recent days since Pakistan has sentenced Kulbhushan Jadhav to death. Pakistan says that Kulbhushan Jadhav is an Indian spy, which India denies strongly.

Despite this tension, the two Prime Ministers are all set to meet on the sidelines of Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit which is going to be held during the month of June. The Pakistani official has said that they do not wish for the bilateral engagements to be derailed because of the Kulbhushan Jadhav incident.

Incidents as this tend to boil up to be a level of major confrontation between these two countries which can even go to a full scaled war on the slightest pretext. India has already said that if Kulbhushan Jadhav is hanged, India will consider it a premeditated murder and this can seriously cripple the relations between both the countries. It will, therefore, be interesting to see if the proposed meeting takes place as India will definitely want to seek a breakthrough in the Kulbhushan Jadhav issue if relations between both these countries are to become better.
