Pakistani journalists and politicians alike welcomed the decision of their Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to visit India and attend the ceremony swearing Narendra Modi in as the Prime Minister of India.

While Sharif's daughter, Maryam Nawaz Sharif, tweeted saying the visit will help remove psychological barriers and there is a need for cordial relations between India and Pakistan, journalist Mehr Tarar said this is a new beginning for India and a new turn in Indo-Pak relations. 



Cutting across party lines, Indian politicians on Saturday welcomed the news that Nawaz had accepted India's invitation to attend the ceremony.

Narendra Modi is to be sworn in as the prime minister of India on Monday, May 26, at 6 pm, and in a one of a kind gesture, all the members of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) have been invited to attend the grand ceremony.
