(2017-10-21) Commenting on the media reports about Pakistani High Commissioner’s meeting with India’s External Affairs Minister, the Spokesperson said, “Mr. Sohail Mahmood has recently assumed office as Pakistan’s new High Commissioner to India. It is customary for the newly-posted envoys to make courtesy calls on the local dignitaries. Accordingly, the High Commissioner had a meeting with India’s Minister of External Affairs, Mrs. Sushma Swaraj, on 17 October 2017.
The meeting was held in a cordial and constructive atmosphere. The Minister and the High Commissioner took stock of the current state of Pakistan-India relations. While broad contours of bilateral relations were deliberated upon during this interaction, no specific case came under discussion. Therefore, the reports appearing in the Indian media are speculative.”
