India invites FM Bilawal for SCO meeting in May: reports
India has invited Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari to a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) that it is hosting in May, Indian media reported on Wednesday.
The SCO meeting will be held in the Indian city of Goa in May this year.
Earlier in an interview with Al Arabiya news channel, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has asked the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to hold ‘serious and sincere talks’ to resolve burning issues, including the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu Kashmir (IIOJK).
“My message to the Indian leadership and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is that let us sit down on the table and have serious and sincere talks to resolve our burning issues like Kashmir,” he said.
A month ago, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari told India that Osama Bin Laden has died but the butcher of Gujarat, Narendra Modi, is still alive and has become the prime minister of India.
The Indian government does not believe in Gandhi’s ideology, but rather in the doctrines of his assassin, Bilawal told journalists at a press conference in New York.
According to the Indian newspaper, the country’s High Commission in Islamabad received an invitation from the Indian Foreign Minister S. Jaishankar.
The Indian Express said that “if Pakistan accepts the invitation, Bilawal Bhutto will be the first Foreign Minister to visit India after 12 years.”
Earlier in July 2011, PPP’s government Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar visited India last time.
The Shanghai Cooperation Organization includes Pakistan, China, India, Russia and Kyrgyzstan, as well as the Central Asian countries of Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, with which Pakistan has recently tried to improve relations.
