Prime Minister Narendra Modi was on Friday warmly received by his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif for their much-anticipated meeting on the sidelines of a Summit in Russia's Ufa.

The two leaders shook hands and posed for photographers before settling down for delegation-level talks.

Indian delegation included National Security Adviser Ajit Doval and foreign secretary S Jaishankar while Sartaj Aziz, Sharif's advisor on foreign affairs and national security, was in the Pakistani delegation.

Setting the tone for the meeting, Modi and Sharif exchanged pleasantries and chatted briefly on Thursday night when they came face-to-face at a dinner hosted by Russian President Vladimir Putin for leaders of five BRICS countries and 10 SCO nations.
