Chief Minister Mufti Muhammad Sayeed on Wednesday expressed hope to see Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif meeting on the sidelines of 70th United Nations General Assembly session this week held in the U.S.
The expectation of the people of both the countries is that Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart, Nawaz Sharif, are able to meet on the sidelines, as people across the divide are yearning for peace, said the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir.
Both the prime ministers are putting up in one hotel but there is no confirmation on their meeting in the wake of growing tension between the two countries over Kashmir.
Mr Sayeed said bilateral talks between the two countries at the highest level will auger well and go a long way in building an atmosphere of peace and stability in the region.
The Chief Minister hoped that the latest truce between the two sides will last and both the countries will be able to resolve all issues amicably. There is a mechanism available to settle the differences, he said, while referring to the efficacy of holding talks across the table.
