The CPI(M) in Jammu and Kashmir today welcomed the "diplomatic gestures" shown by India and Pakistan with regard to the the invitation to, and its acceptance by, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to the swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister-designate Narendra Modi.

"The invitation from Modi to SAARC heads including Pakistan Prime Minister and the nod given by Nawaz Sharif proves to be an opening to address certain substantive issues between the two countries," state secretary of CPI(M), MY Tarigami said in a statement in Jammu.

Tarigami, however, said only future will tell how these gestures prove helpful to break the barriers of hostilities between the two countries.

"Hope these signals emanating from the two countries right now prove helpful in bridging the gap of uneasy relations in future," he said.
