Nawaz Modi Letter

PakistanTribe has received the complete and authentic text of the letter written by Narendra Modi.

Dear Mian Sahib,

I thank you for your letter of 2, June, 2014 and the positive sentiments that you have expressed about your visit to India last month.

I was particularly delighted and honoured by your participation in the ceremony for the swearing in of the new government. Your presence and that of other leaders from our region not only added a special sheen to the event, but also a celebration of the strength of democracy in our region and a reflection of our collective hopes and shared destinies.

I was also encouraged by our discussions on our bilateral relations and the convergence in our views, especially on the fact that a relationship between India and Pakistan defined by peace, friendship and cooperation would unleash enormous opportunities for our youth, secure a more prosperous future for our people and accelerate progress across our region. I look forward therefore to working closely with you and your Government in an atmosphere free from confrontation and violence in order to chart a new course in our bilateral relations.

I also take this opportunity to condemn in the strongest terms the terrorists attack in Karachi and convey my deepest condolences for the loss of innocent lives in this senseless and barbaric attack.

I thank you once again for the sari that you sent for my mother, a gesture that she has deeply appreciated.

With warm regards,

PakistanTribe learnt on June 11 that Nawaz Sharif sent a letter to Indian counterpart thanking him for keeping up the traditional hospitality of subcontinent during the visit.
