Earlier, in a message to Prime Minister Imran Khan, Narendra Modi sent greetings and best wishes to the people of Pakistan on the Pakistan Day, ARY News reported.

“I extend my greetings and best wishes to the people of Pakistan on the National Day of Pakistan. It is time that people of the sub-continent work together for a democratic, peaceful, progressive and prosperous region, in an atmosphere free of terror and violence,” read the message received by PM Imran Khan, who shared this message in a tweet.

In September last year, Premier Khan had written a letter to Indian PM Modi seeking resumption of dialogue with ‘constructive engagement’ between the two countries.

In his letter, Khan had asked PM Modi to green light a meeting between external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and her Pakistani counterpart Shah Mehmood Qureshi on the sidelines of the UN meet, so they could ‘explore the way forward, especially the holding of the SAARC Council of Ministers followed by the SAARC Summit in Islamabad.’
