Pakistan PM Khan calls for peace, congratulates Modi

According to a report by Reuters, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan congratulated India's Narendra Modi on the election victory of his Hindu-nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party.

Khan reportedly tweeted, "I congratulate Prime Minister Modi on the electoral victory of BJP and allies.

Look forward to working with him for peace, progress and prosperity in South Asia." Reuters reports that the two nations have had tense relations following a confrontation that saw both countries carry out an aerial bombing mission against each other, culminating in a brief dogfight, before tensions began to subside.

Pakistan also announced that it would conduct a training launch of a Shaheen II ballistic missile, which it claims is capable of delivering both conventional and nuclear weapons at a target up to 1,500 miles away.
