“I have written to Pakistan PM Mr Nawaz Sharif, conveying my greetings on the National Day of Pakistan,” Prime Minister Modi tweeted.
PM Narendra Modi further said that he was of firm belief that all outstanding issues with Pakistan can be resolved through bilateral dialogue in an atmosphere free from terror and violence.
Pakistan Day commemorates the Lahore Resolution of 1940 and the adoption of the first constitution of the country during its transition into an Islamic Republic on March 23, 1956.
The resolution called for the creation of independent states for Muslims in north-western and eastern British India.
Congratulating all Pakistani nationals residing in India on the occasion of Pakistan Day, High Commissioner Basit presided over an impressive flag hoisting ceremony at the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi.
Referring to Pakistan-India relations, the High Commissioner underlined the importance of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s vision of “Peace for development and development for peace.”
