New Delhi: Pakistan is yet to confirm who will represent it at Prime Minister-elect Narendra Modi’s swearing-in ceremony, Indian foreign ministry spokesman Syed Akbaruddin said on Friday.

“We had sent invitations to eight leaders. We have confirmation from seven of them,” Akbaruddin said.

Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is among the invitees to Monday’s ceremony, along with leaders from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, the Maldives, Sri Lanka and Mauritius.

“We are awaiting a response for that,” the spokesman said.
