Former external affairs minister and senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid was all praise for Pakistani PM Nawaz Sharif even as he lashed out at Prime Minister Modi during his invitation lecture at the Jinnah Institute in Islamabad on Thursday.

Analyzing the cross-border relationship between India and Pakistan from his perspective, Khurshid said, “Modi is not used to talking to people who disagree with him.”

Speaking about Pak PM Nawaz Sharif attending Modi’s swearing-in ceremony in India, the former external affairs minister said, “If you look back at the first face-to-face between our PMs, your PM took a brave, farsighted decision. What we said and did made things uncomfortable for Pakistan after the visit.”

For Pakistan
