Modi Invites BIMSTEC Leaders To The Oath Ceremony – Pak Is Likely To Not Be Involved

Date:

Indian Elections 2019 have just concluded and the results are in complete favor of the Modi-led BJP-NDA alliance. Narendra Modi is all set to swear as Prime Minister on 30th May 2019.

As big an event as it may be, Modi isn’t leaving any stone unturned to make it bigger. The BJP leader has invited the respective leaders of Bangladesh, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Nepal, and Bhutan to the oath-taking ceremony.

This move is viewed as Modi’s strategy of improving the strong neighborhood policy and also to make good relations for the next five years. Though it is not yet confirmed which leaders will be attending this event, it is speculated that no leader will actually step back.

Former foreign secretary Kanwal Sibal said that the invitation to BIMSTEC leaders proves that India’s interests are better served by these countries rather than by SAARC.

It also shows that there will be no move to involve Pakistan despite Imran Khan’s congratulatory Tweet and a phone call to Modi on Sunday.
