Modi to make a surprise stopover to Lahore, wish Happy Birthday to Nawaz Sharif

Kabul, December 25: In a sudden development, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he will meet his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Lahore on Friday afternoon on his way back to New Delhi from Kabul.

Modi, who reached Afghanistan in the morning from Moscow, tweeted that he spoke to Sharif over telephone and greeted him on his birthday.

“Looking forward to meeting Sharif in Lahore today afternoon when I will drop by on my way back to Delhi.”

Modi’s decision comes soon after he blamed Pakistan – although without taking its name – for terrorism in Afghanistan and for allegedly trying to harm India-Afghanistan ties. He was addressing the Afghan parliament.
