New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today greeted Pakistan on its Independence Day, notwithstanding the chill between the two countries in the wake of recent attacks in Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir.
"Greetings & good wishes to the people of Pakistan on their Independence Day," Modi tweeted. His greetings came in the midst of chill between the two countries in the wake of terror attacks at Gurdaspur in Punjab and Udhampur in Jammu and Kashmir. The terrorists, who struck at these two places, had infiltrated from Pakistan.
One of the terrorists was caught alive in the Udhampur attack. The relations between the two countries suffered another blow recently with Pakistan refusing to invite Jammu and Kashmir assembly speaker to a conference of Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, in protest to which India decided to boycott the meet to be held in Islamabad from September 30 to October 8.
