Indian external minister Sushma Swaraj to visit Pakistan on 8th


India Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj will travel to Islamabad on December 8 on a day-long visit to attend the ‘Heart of Asia’ security conference being held here, Indian media reported Saturday citing top government sources.

Swaraj will be accompanied by Indian Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar during her visit, which will be the first significant engagement between India and Pakistan since the meeting between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and PM Narendra Modi in July at Ufa earlier this year.

Swaraj is expected to meet the Pakistani prime minister as well as his Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on the sidelines of the ‘Heart of Asia’ regional conference on Afghanistan.
