Although the Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman was welcoming of the revived relations between the arch rivals, he was also of the opinion that conducting a meeting arranged by a business associate has 'an underlying conflict of interest'.

"We welcome the thaw in Pak-India relations, but to have a business associate arrange the two prime ministers' meetings has an underlying conflict of interest," he tweeted.

Referring to an earlier secret meeting between the two leaders, he said, "Meetings of the two prime ministers, from the secret meeting in Kathmandu to the one in Lahore, must be done through institutional frameworks with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the loop for sustainability."

Further, Khan cited that such meetings held between the prime ministers undermines a process whereby tensions can be eased, and raises questions and conflict of interest.
