India and the US began their first strategic and commercial dialogue here from Monday to set the stage for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's third summit meeting with President Barack Obama within a year a week later.

However, whats more interesting is that both Prime Ministers of India and Pakistan have now been reportedly confirmed to stay in the same hotel.

Modi will arrive on 23 while his counterpart Nawaz Sharif will reach two days later on the 25. Foreign Ministry Sources told NDTV that despite no bilateral meeting have been scheduled, there is a possibility of both bumping into each other. "Nothing is ruled out or ruled in."

In response to the speculations, Pakistan officials said that “if they bump into each other at the hotel, there will of course be Salaam-Dua." If at all a schedule could be inserted, then it would mean that India-Pakistan could have a crucial meeting that could have a impact in the United Nations General Assembly on the clashing issues involving both the countries.
