“PM @narendramodi met @UN Secretary General Mr. antonioguterres on the sidelines of the @G7 Summit. The two leaders had fruitful discussions on a wide range of subjects,” the PMO tweeted.

The meeting also comes days after the UN Security Council held a closed-door consultation on Kashmir, on the insistence of China, which was backing good friend Pakistan to the hilt on the Kashmir issue.

On Saturday, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi called up Guterres to apprise him about the “evolving and delicate situation” in Jammu and Kashmir. Qureshi said it was responsibility of the international community to play a role in addressing the Kashmir situation.
