Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has sent a white sari for the mother of his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, who had gifted a shawl to the Pakistani leader's mother.

Expressing his gratitude, Modi on Thursday thanked Sharif for the gift, which he said, he will soon send to his mother.

"Nawaz Sharif ji has sent a wonderful white sari for my mother. I am really grateful to him & will send it to my mother very soon," Modi tweeted.

Immediately after being sworn-in on May 26, Modi took to Twitter to let others know about his informal conversation with his Pakistani counterpart. As per the tweets at that time, the two had "emotional" conversations.

Sharif, Modi tweeted, was touched by visuals of his mother offering him sweets.

"The visuals touched both Nawaz Sharifji and his mother. He (Sharif) told me after seeing the visuals, his mother got very emotional," Modi tweeted.

Sharif, according to Modi's tweets, visits his mother once a week.

Modi had sent a shawl for Sharif's mother after which the daughter of the Pakistani leader Maryam Nawaz Sharif tweeted, "Thank u v much PM @narendramodi for the beautiful shawl for my grandmother. My father personally delivered it to her."
