“Got a call from PM Nawaz Sharif. He expressed condolences on the loss of lives in various parts of India due to the earthquake,” PM Modi said in a tweet on Thursday.
The PM added that Sharif appreciated India’s efforts in the rescue operations in Nepal.
“I thank him for his kind words,” Modi said.
Modi said that he suggested to Sharif that “SAARC nations should conduct regular joint exercises on disaster relief and rescue”.
“SAARC nations can come together and hold annual exercises of rescue teams, doctors etc on how we can minimise damage during natural disasters,” he added.
