Modi,Sharif exchange pleasantries at SCO but Kulbhushan row casts shadow. Astana (Kazakhstan): Eighteen months after their last meeting – in Lahore, under happier circumstances – Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi came face-to-face with his Pakistani counterpart here on Thursday.

Modi,Sharif exchange pleasantries at SCO but Kulbhushan row casts shadow

All that transpired in this fleeting encounter is that Modi inquired after Sharif’s health. Though this encounter may possibly act as a breaker on the sharp escalation in tensions between the two countries, the gulf that has grown between them is difficult to bridge – as evidenced by the meeting the same day in distant Holland, where Indian and Pakistani officials sat down at the International Court of Justice to discuss the timetable for the ongoing Kulbhushan Jadhav case.

UK elections 2017: June 19 Brexit talks may be delayed as May loses House majority. A hung Parliament is the likely result of the June 8 general elections in the UK as the Theresa May-led Conservatives have failed to win an overall majority. the latest BBC forecast has said. The Gurdian has also reported that a hung Parliament has been confirmed.

At the time of writing, the Conservatives were predicted to win 318 seats, down from the 331 won by the party in the 2015 general election, while the Jeremy Corbyn-led Labour Party was predicted to win 261 seats, adding 29 seats to their previous tally. With talks on Britain's departure from the European Union due to start on June 19, the election results have brought in an element of uncertainty at a time when the UK could perhaps least afford it. In fact, Reuters reported that the talks could now be delayed. The results were in line with what exit polls had forecast. The Conservative party is shy of the magic 326 figure for an overall majority in the House of Commons. Modi and Erdogan: Strong right-wing leaders putting their democracies in peril.

UK Elections 2017 end in hung parliament but Indian markets will weather the storm. Indian markets edged lower on Friday, in line with their Asian peers as the exit poll in the United Kingdom (UK) predicted a loss for the British Prime Minister Theresa May's ruling Conservative party that could result in a hung Parliament and delay Brexit talks. Asian markets were trading mixed on Friday, with Nikkei, Straits Times and KOSPI marginally in the green, while Hang Seng, Taiwan Weighted and Jakarta Composite slipped 0.1% - 0.3% in intra-day deals.

Back home, the S&P BSE Sensex and the Nifty50 indices were trading around 0.2% lower each at 31,153 and 9,618 levels, respectively. Going ahead, the reaction by financial markets will be seen as an important gauge of how investors look at the United Kingdom’s prospects, the impact on Indian markets, however, is likely to be limited. Though the fall seen on Friday was warranted given the global linkages, analysts say, Indian markets are expected to perform better than most other emerging and developed markets over the long run.
