Decoded! Here's why External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj wore 'green' sari in Pakistan

Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj clarified on Monday as to why she had worn a green sari while in Islamabad.

Addressing the Parliament, Sushma said that there were some who had questioned her choice of sari colour and also as to why she had spoken in Urdu.

The EAM said that she always wore green colour on Wednesdays and that Urdu was also a language of India.

Breaking the logjam in their ties, India and Pakistan had announced last week (on Wednesday) that they had decided to engage in a "comprehensive" dialogue that would include peace and security and Jammu and Kashmir.

Capping a series of positive developments since Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif met in Paris only ten days ago, it was announced in Islamabad that the Foreign Secretaries would meet to decide the modalities and schedule of the dialogue.

Pakistan assured India of "steps being taken to expedite the early conclusion" of the Mumbai attack trial, something that India has been pressing for long.

The National Security Advisors (NSAs) of India and Pakistan who had recently met in Bangkok, would continue to address all issues connected to terrorism, according to a joint statement issued by the two countries.

The joint statement came after Swaraj met Sharif and later his Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz on the concluding day of her two-day visit for attending a multilateral conference on Afghanistan. 

Addressing the press to announce the 'comprehensive bilateral dialogue' Swaraj was seen sporting a green coloured sari.

Swaraj also wore it when she met Sharif.
