The meeting

On June 18, TOI had reported that a meeting between the two PMs at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) was on the cards after Modi’s decision to release the Pakistani fishermen.

After Pakistan ruled out the possibility of declaring Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) as a proscribed organization for lack of evidence, an unsurprised Indian security establishment said it would only make things difficult for Islamabad in various international forums and give India another diplomatic handle to embarrass it globally.08:07 AM

Indian officials said they were looking at a “substantive” dialogue with Islamabad with focus on terrorism and the release of Mumbai blasts accused Zaki-ur Rehman Lakhvi.
