Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday congratulated Pakistan’s new Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif after the latter was sworn-in after his election earlier in the day. Taking to Twitter, PM Modi said that India desires peace and stability in a region free of terror.

“Congratulations to H. E. Mian Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif on his election as the Prime Minister of Pakistan. India desires peace and stability in a region free of terror, so that we can focus on our development challenges and ensure the well-being and prosperity of our people,” PM Modi tweeted.

 

Shehbaz Sharif, the younger brother of former Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif, took the oath to the top office on Monday after his election by the National Assembly earlier in the day. Sharif’s election brings the curtains down on former Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s era after a chaotic two weeks of political crisis in the country.

Khan was earlier ousted from the PM office after losing a no-confidence vote tabled by the joint opposition, led by Sharif, in the National Assembly.
