"The meeting of the envoys, the first of its kind, comes within a month of Modi's meeting with leaders of India's South Asian neighbours and aims to chart out concrete follow-up plans with each South Asian neighbour within specified timelines."
New Delhi, June 22 - Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh has summoned all Indian heads of mission in the South Asian neighbourhood for a day-long conclave in the capital Monday, official sources said Sunday.

This comes as a follow-up to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's historic initiative to invite leaders of the SAARC countries and Mauritius to his swearing-in ceremony last month.

The meeting of the envoys, the first of its kind, comes within a month of Modi's meeting with leaders of India's South Asian neighbours and aims to chart out concrete follow-up plans with each South Asian neighbour within specified timelines.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will chair all the sessions to take stock of the current state of play in India's relations with each of the neighbours and set down the new government's priorities and approach.
