SAARC Yatra: Jaishankar in Islamabad

Islamabad, March 3 –┬áIndian Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar arrived in Islamabad on Tuesday on the third leg of his four-nation SAARC Yatra.

He is expected to hold talks with his Pakistani counterpart Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhary in Islamabad and also call on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Jaishankar’s visit comes seven months after India called off foreign secretary talks over the Pakistani envoy in New Delhi hobnobbing with Kashmiri separatists.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi called up the Pakistan prime minister to wish him for the cricket World Cup and also discussed Jaishankar’s visit to Pakistan.

Jaishankar flew in from Dhaka. He was in Bhutan on Sunday on the first leg and will travel to Kabul on Wednesday as part of the SAARC Yatra.
