New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday called up his Pakistani counterpart M Nawaz Sharif and conveyed “good wishes for the holy month of Ramzan”.

He also called up and greeted Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and Bangladeshi Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Modi’s gesture to Sharif came close on the heels of the recent war of words between New Delhi and Islamabad.

“Also conveyed to PM Sharif our decision to release detained Pakistani fishermen on this pious occasion (sic),” wrote

Modi on Twitter, shortly after making public his call.  “The fishermen released will be able to be with their families to observe this blessed month,” he added.

Sharif is learnt to have told Modi leaders were like heads of families, and should lead their people to peace and prosperity. Pakistan and India should work together for peace, he reportedly said.

Sharif recently slammed the “political leadership” of India for making “irresponsible” and “imprudent” statements.
