Fcalled ICCI Pres­i­dent, Sid­harth Birla,

on the vis­it­ing SAARC lead­ers who were in New Delhi to at­tend the swear­ing in cer­e­mony of the Prime Min­is­ter of In­dia, Naren­dra Modi. Birla called on Hamid Karzai, Pres­i­dent of Afghanistan; Sushil Koirala, Prime Min­is­ter of Nepal and Prof. G L Peiris, For­eign Min­is­ter of Sri Lanka.

Dur­ing the meet­ing with the dig­ni­taries, Birla said that the move to in­vite the South Asian lead­ers for the swear­ing cer­e­mony and their re­sponse is a his­toric ef­fort to­wards build­ing strong ties with neigh­bours. He added that the bi­lat­eral talks would pave the way for long last­ing peace and mul­ti­fac­eted co­op­er­a­tion among SAARC na­tions which was crit­i­cal to put the re­gion on a strong pedestal of sus­tained growth and de­vel­op­ment. Birla re­it­er­ated that the pri­vate sec­tor of In­dia is com­mit­ted to strength­en­ing bi­lat­eral eco­nomic ties with neigh­bour­ing coun­tries.
