Sharif under fire over no Kashmir mention in joint statement

Modi Sharif

After initially welcoming today’s meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif, leaders and media in Pakistan have criticised the government over the absence of any mention of the vexed Kashmir issue in the joint statement.

Sharif met Modi in the Russian city of Ufa on the sidelines of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) following which a joint statement was issued that mentioned terrorism and the need to expedite the Mumbai trial but Kashmir was conspicuously missing in it.
