Pakistan's incoming Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif reached out yesterday to India and the United States, pledging to strengthen relations after his thumping victory in landmark elections.

 

Sharif promised Pakistan's "full support" as the United States withdraws combat troops from Afghanistan and made overtures to nuclear rival India in a briefing with the foreign media at his family estate outside Lahore.

 

In an astonishing comeback 14 years after he was ousted by a military coup and briefly jailed, his centre-right Pakistan Muslim League-N is projected to win 130 of the 272 directly elected seats in the national assembly.
