ISLAMABAD–In a tweet posted on his official Twitter account Monday, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he had written to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to convey his greetings on the occasion of Pakistan Day.
Modi also tweeted that he believes bilateral dialogue, in an atmosphere free from violence and terror, can help resolve all outstanding problems.
Earlier in Jan on the occasion of India’s Republic Day, Nawaz had also greeted his Indian counterpart and said both leaders could work together for regional peace and South Asia’s economic development.
“In wishing the people of India progress and prosperity, it is our sincere wish to forge friendly and cooperative relations between our two countries,” PM Nawaz had said, adding that Pakistan remained committed to developing friendly relations with India on the basis of “sovereign equality, mutual respect and commonality of interests”.
A highly-anticipated joint military parade by the armed forces of Pakistan took place today in Islamabad after a gap of seven years, to commemorate the historic Pakistan Resolution on March 23, 1940 — a day which marks the the birth of a separate state for Muslims.
The joint military parade had been a regular event with display of military power and show of Pakistan’s folk culture, which captured the imagination of the public quite like the traditional parade, with its impressive march-pasts and aerial shows.
