Imran Khan to be sworn in as PM Aug 18


"But, the kind of speech Mr. Imran Khan has given is very nice and I wish him all the best and with folded hands, I appeal, that we have a attractive relationship".

In an interview to news agency ANI, Modi said he called Prime Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief to congratulate on his victory and he hoped that Pakistan would work for a safe, secure, stable and prosperous region.

"For this, we have taken several well-known initiatives from the beginning of our term".

She recalled, "I predicted when former prime minister Nawaz Sharif took oath back in 2013 that it would be back-breaking for him and the prediction tuned out to be true".

The India-Pakistan ties nose-dived in recent years with no bilateral talks taking place.

The 25 July Pakistan elections, which has seen cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) emerging as the single largest party with 116 seats, has however ignited hopes of a thaw in India-Pakistan ties.

The PTI on Friday confirmed that the Prime Minister-in-waiting will take oath at the President House in Islamabad on August 18, instead of August 11. "It is an important position and I will work with the PPP for Sindh's development".

The Punjab government on Saturday also said in a statement that Sidhu has been invited for the swearing-in ceremony.
