A Joint Investigation Team (JIT) from Pakistan will arrive in India on March 27 to probe a militant attack on an air base in the border town of Pathankot, said Indian Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj on Thursday (March 17).
Swaraj made the remarks after holding a bilateral meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister’s Advisor on Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz, on the sidelines of the 37th South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Council of Ministers session in Nepal.
“We discussed Pathankot during our meeting. I am happy to tell you that your wait is over, as you were asking when Pakistan’s Joint Investigation Team (JIT) will come to India. We have decided the dates and the team will come on 27th (March) at night. They will start their work from 28th,” Swaraj told reporters.
“We are cooperating with India on the Pathankot incident, and now that the JIT is going there, I think good results will come on this subject,” Aziz said.
Aziz also said that Prime Minister Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif could meet on the sidelines of a Nuclear Security Summit in Washington next month.
