There is no bilateral meeting planned between the prime ministers of India and Pakistan at a regional summit next week, India’s foreign ministry spokesman Rajeev Kumar said on Thursday.

Imran Khan and Narendra Modi are both scheduled to attend a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) in Kyrgyzstan on June 13-14.

Last month, foreign ministers of the two South Asian neighbours shook hands with each other on the sidelines of the SCO Council of Foreign Ministers meeting in Kyrgyzstan’s capital Bishkek, signalling de-escalation in tensions flared up following the Pulwama incident in February.
