Kathmandu: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had set a deadline for his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif to clear stand on the critical issue of terrorism at the 18th South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Summit in Kathmandu.

According to the reports available with the India TV, Modi had given Pakistan time till Tuesday evening (4pm) to announce publically that no terror activities would be plotted or funded on its soil.

Besides this, Modi had also asked Sharif to announce that his government will act against 26/11 mastermind, Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, and the two nations will sit together to find a solution to the contentious Kashmir issue without seeking any involvement of extremists and others.

The Indian Prime Minister waited till Tuesday evening for Sharif’s reply but Modi didn’t received any affirmative response from his Pakistani counterpart.

It was yesterday, the frostiness of ties between India and Pakistan was completely visible when the two shared the dais at the SAARC Summit in Nepal’s capital city.

Sharif after entering the podium did not look at Modi and proceeded straight to his seat. Leave alone a handshake, there was no exchange of courtesies between Prime Ministers of India and Pakistan during the nearly three-hour summit.

Modi and Sharif, who were sitting two seats away from each other, did not look at each other even when Sharif crossed before and after delivering his speech at the 18th meeting of the eight-member regional bloc.

Meanwhile, sources said that the two leaders may hold an informal meet today during the retreat session at Dhulikhel.
