POKHARA: A Joint Investigation Team (JIT) from Pakistan, probing the Pathankot terror attack, will come to India on March 27, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Thursday after a meeting with Sartaj Aziz, foreign affairs advisor to the Pakistan prime minister.

Sushma Swaraj said the probe will start on March 28.

She also said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has accepted the invitation, extended by Aziz, to attend the Saarc Summit in Islamabad on November 9-10, later this year.

Aziz, meanwhile, expressed the hope that Modi and Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will meet in Washington on March 31, on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit.

"I hope both prime ministers will meet on March 31," he said, adding that he was not sure if there will be a structured dialogue between the two leaders at that time.
