iOS project created using Xamarin studio on Mac fails to load inside Visual studio 2015 on windows

I have a solution with multiple projects created using Xamarin Studio on a Mac machine.
When I try to open the solution in Visual Studio 2015 on a Windows machine, the iOS project fails to load.

I'm getting the following message "error : The attribute "Include" in element is unrecognized."

Any ideas ?

    Why are you using Xamarin Studio on the Mac-Its end of life.

    Have you tried some basic testing such as...
    Do you have the same problem if you make a new solution in Visual Studio for Mac?
    Can you make a new solution in Visual Studio WIndows? Does it compile and Run?
    Can you take that working solution from Windows to Mac, clean, build, run?
    Can you then take it back to Windows?

    @CharbelSeif The first thing I'd try is closing Xamarin Studio and manually deleting all the 'bin', 'obj' and 'packages' folders from your project. Reload in Xamarin Studio where the packages should automatically restore. Clean and then rebuild and see if the problem persists.
