Paris: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif had a brief interaction on the sidelines of the United Nations climate change conference in Paris on Monday, days after the latter said that Islamabad was ready for an unconditional dialogue with India to resolve all unsorted issues.

It is not yet clear what all they discussed during their brief meeting in Paris. The UN climate change conference will conclude on December 11.


Sharif had said, Pakistan wants sustainable peace and so his country was ready to hold talks with India without any preconditions.

However, Nawaz Sharif expressed solidarity with the separatists groups of Kashmir. He even pledged to support them in their endeavors.

Nawaz Sharif made the sensational statement during a meeting with his British counterpart David Cameron on the sidelines of Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Valletta, Malta on Friday. He further mentioned that Pakistan aims at maintaining a friendly relation with its neighbouring countries including India and Afghanistan. Islamabad follows a policy of friendship towards all and malice towards none, Sharif added.

Mentioning that Pakistan is a victim of terrorism, Sharif condemned the recent attack on Paris. Pakistan is against all kinds of terrorism and militant manifestations, he said during the meeting.
