Ordinary Pakistanis want Sharif to accept Modi's invitation

Pakistan, May 22 (ANI): A large number of Pakistanis were pleasantly surprised by the fact that Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was on the guest list of leaders from the eight-member SAARC invited to attend the swearing in of Narendra Modi on May 26. Narendra Modi has invited the leaders of Pakistan and other neighbours to his inauguration as prime minister in a bold step to embark on a policy of regional engagement. It was not immediately clear if Sharif would accept, but analysts said the visit would be politically difficult. In the markets of capital Islamabad, however, many people said Sharif ought to attend the ceremony despite Modi's anti-Pakistan stance. If Sharif were to attend the planned ceremony in the forecourt of the presidential mansion, it would be a first in the history of both nations. May 22, 2014
