No Shake Hand Only Namaste: During the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) meeting this morning, Indian External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar and Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto came together face to face for the first time and they posed for a photo together. However, Indian Foreign Minister Jaishankar did not shake hands with Bilawal Bhutto.
External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar today welcomed his Pakistani counterpart Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari in Goa for the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit. Visuals showed the traditional greeting of the external affairs minister with folded hands in front of the two posing for photographs and S Jaishankar gesturing them to the venue.
Bilawal Bhutto has become the first senior leader from the neighboring country to visit India in nearly 12 years. However, there is no confirmation yet on the bilateral talks between the Foreign Ministers of India and Pakistan.
