"For this, we have taken several well-known initiatives from the beginning of our term".

Former captain of Indian cricket team Sunil Gavaskar will not be attending Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan's oath-taking ceremony on August 18 as the prime minister, reported Indian newspaper India Today.

India also skipped the 2016 Saarc summit in Islamabad after a terrorist attack on an army garrison in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir, left 18 soldiers dead.

Samia Khan further said that July 25 elections were held in a threatening atmosphere, adding that a total lunar eclipse also occurred on July 27. The sentencing of alleged Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav to death by a military court in April a year ago further deteriorated bilateral ties.
