Sharif, Modi likely to meet in Washington

Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is likely to meet his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi in Washington next month on the sidelines of a nuclear summit hosted by US President Barack Obama, a media report said on Friday.
Sharif and Modi have both accepted President Obama’s invitation to attend a nuclear summit he is hosting in Washington on March 31 and April 1, diplomatic sources told Dawn.
“The chances are strong, very strong,” said a senior official. 
“But you know the history of India-Pakistan talks, you cannot be certain about an event until it has happened,” the official added.
