ISLAMABAD: In a letter written to Indian premier Narendra Modi on Wednesday, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said he looked forward to working him in harmony to resolve all unsettled matters in the interest of the two nations.

The premier also expressed satisfaction over his visit to India.

"I have returned satisfied with meaningful exchange of thoughts over regional issues and matters of mutual interest," Sharif said.

“Million of people living in poverty in both countries deserve our foremost attention and their future is integrated with our common economic destiny," Sharif said.

The premier further said that prosperity could be brought to both nations with concerted efforts.
