India appointed its new High Commissioner in Islamabad, Dr TCA Raghavan, on Thursday, NDTV reported.

Dr Raghavan, currently serving as India’s top envoy in Singapore, will replace Sharat Sabharwal, who will return to India this month after spending more than four years in Islamabad.

Dr Raghavan previously served as India's Deputy High Commissioner in Islamabad 10 years ago.

The newly appointed diplomat is “expected to take up his assignment shortly,” according to a press release by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs.

His predecessor, Sabharwal, oversaw many bilateral advancements between India and Pakistan and worked towards bridging distances between the two neighbouring nuclear-tipped countries. Sabharwal was also present for the swearing in ceremony of new prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

Welcome Dr, Raghavan (designated High Commissioner). Hope the people of two countries can get closer during your tenure in Islamabad. Ambassador (High Commissioner) Sabharwal did a good job and we thank him for this. We wish him good luck with his future diplomatic assignment. Stay well Sir.

Let's wait and see what good news he is bringing with him from Indian Prime Minister Mr. Manmohan Singh for Pakistan?
