Modi lands in Pakistan, meets Sharif


Lahore, Dec 25:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Lahore for a meeting with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in a surprise visit to this country.

This is the first visit to Pakistan by an Indian premier in more than 10 years.
Modi was received by Sharif with a warm hug at the tarmac of Allama Iqbal International Airport after his unexpected stopover here on his way back home after a day-long trip today to Afghanistan where he went after concluding a two-day visit to Russia yesterday.
Modi was accorded a red carpet welcome as PM’s special IAF Boeing 737 plane made a smooth touchdown at 4.20 local time(4.50 IST). He then took a chopper to proceed to Sharif’s Raiwind palatial residence in the outskirts of Lahore.
