Sources have indicated to NDTV the conversations will not be always a prelude to some resumption of the dialogue process involving both states, a choice which will happen after today’s talks.
Sources have suggested that PM Modi will, once more, lift on terror with Pakistan India’s worries.
Only a day in the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir in, Pakistani forces broken ceasefire again ahead of the discussions.
Till a week past, there is a sense the two leaders would greet one another and have an instant chat in what’s called a “pull-aside” in diplomatic parlance.
India called a dialogue between foreign secretaries off incensed that the envoy in New Delhi in Pakistan had participated with Kashmiri separatists in the runup to those discussions.
Mr Sharif and Mr Modi met in November, 2014 in Kathmandu, but didn’t possess a bilateral assembly that was suitable.
By wishing him at the start of the sacred month of Ramzan, Prime Minister Modi subsequently reached out; through the phone call the Pakistani PM stressed the need for peaceful bilateral ties between the nations.
