Pokhara: In a major development in terms of Pathankot terror attack, Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj on Thursday told media that Pakistan's Joint Investigation Team (JIT) will reach India on March 27 to visit the attack site.
The development came after Sushma Swaraj's meeting with Pakistan's Foreign Affairs Advisor Sartaj Aziz in Nepal's Pokhara.
"It's not possible that I and Pakistan Foreign Affairs Advisor meet (Sartaj Aziz) and Pathankot issue is not taken up. Yes, it was discussed," Sushma Swaraj said
Talking about the meet, Sartaj Aziz said, "SAARC Foreign Ministerial meet was conducted in a very positive atmosphere."
"We're hopeful that both PMs (India and Pak) will meet there (In Washington)," the Pakistan Foreign Affairs Advisor said.
"Looking at the way Pathankot issue has been handled and cooperation on this subject, we're hopeful of good results," Sartaj Aziz added.
"The atmosphere of this year's SAARC meeting was quite different from the previous ones," Sushma Swaraj said.
Aziz also handed over an invitation to Swaraj for Prime Minister Modi to attend the SAARC Summit hosted by Pakistan on November 9 and 10.
Swaraj said she has accepted the invitation on behalf of the Prime Minister and thanked Sharif and Aziz for it.
Earlier in the day, both Aziz and Swaraj met over breakfast at the Fishtail hotel on Fewa river here ahead of the 37th SAARC Council of Ministers Meeting.
Earlier this year, a scheduled meeting between Foreign Secretaries of Pakistan and India was postponed after the January 2 Pathankot attack for which India blames Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Muhammed.
