Pak govt denies reports of Nawaz-Modi ‘secret meeting’ in Kathmandu


ISLAMABAD: Federal Government spokesman has denied the Indian media reports of a ‘secret meeting’ between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Narendra Modi in Kathmandu in 2014 on the sidelines of SAARC summit.
According to a statement issued here, the spokesman termed the reports of secret meeting between Nawaz Sharif and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi as baseless, saying no such meeting was held during the SAARC conference in Kathmandu.
Earlier today, the Hindustan Times in its report had claimed the two leaders had held an hour-long secret meeting on the sidelines of Saarc summit in Kathmandu in 2014.
The Hindustan Times quoted famous Indian journalist Barkha Dutt as writing in her book that the meeting between the two PMs had been facilitated by Indian businessman Sajjan Jindal.
