altJehlum Post News Network/Islamabad/Jan 28, 2015/Pakistan's high commissioner to India Abdul Basit was called to Islamabad on Wednesday for urgent consultation with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif regarding the evolving situation in the region after US President Obama's visit to Delhi. Diplomatic sources told Dawn that High Commissioner Abdul Basit will brief top the leadership on recent developments in the region, including the US-India nuclear deal and its implications on strategic stability in South Asia.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Obama announced last week that they had reached an agreement to break the deadlock that has been stalling a civilian nuclear power agreement. “I am pleased that six years after we signed our bilateral agreement, we are moving towards commercial cooperation, consistent with our laws [and] international legal obligations,” Modi said at a joint press conference with Obama in the Indian capital New Delhi. Basit met PM Nawaz at the Prime Minister House and briefed him about Indo-Pak relations in the wake of Obama's visit to India. The invitation to the annual celebration is one of the biggest honours the country can bestow on a foreign leader and underscores the increasing warmth between Obama and India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi.PM Nawaz while talking to the high commissioner said: "India is an important neighbour for Pakistan and we would like to have normal relations on the basis of respect and sovereign equality". The premier further said that it is important for both Indian and Pakistan to resolve all their outstanding issues, including Jammu and Kashmir, in order to have durable peace and security in the region.

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
