India's Modi on surprise 'goodwill' Pakistan visit

Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi (R) shakes hands with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif upon his arrival in Lahore on December 25, 2015Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a surprise “goodwill” visit to arch-rival Pakistan on Friday, with the first such trip in a decade seen as a step towards normalising ties between the nuclear-armed neighbours. Modi, who announced the trip via Twitter while in Kabul, met in Lahore with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif, who was celebrating his birthday and the wedding of a grand-daughter, for a two-and-a-half hour visit seen by analysts as a positive step. A meeting of their top diplomats is now set for January in Islamabad, indicating a potential thaw in ties between two countries that have fought three wars, along with countless close calls, since gaining independence from Britain in 1947.
