Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and his elder brother, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, extended their congratulations to Narendra Modi on his swearing-in for a third consecutive term as India's Prime Minister. The congratulations were posted on platform X, underscoring the electoral confidence Modi has garnered among the Indian populace.

In a heartfelt message, Nawaz Sharif, the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) chief, noted Modi's success as a reflection of the people's trust in his leadership. He urged Modi to use this opportunity to better the lives of the two billion people in South Asia. Modi's swearing-in ceremony, held at the Rashtrapati Bhavan, witnessed attendance from significant leaders of India's neighboring countries and the Indian Ocean region.

While Shehbaz, having recently returned from China, Pakistan's all-weather ally, was not invited to the ceremony, he still took to X to congratulate Modi. Other dignitaries in attendance included leaders from Maldives, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Mauritius, Bhutan, and Seychelles. However, Indo-Pak relations have remained strained since 2019 when Pakistan downgraded ties following India's suspension of Article 370.
