Pak and Indian PM’s held fruitful talks

pak-india-pmAdda: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh who held talks with his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani on the sidelines of the 17th South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) summit, today wanted the liberalised visa regime being negotiated to be put in place at the earliest.

Dr Singh told Mr. Gilani that it is imperative to bring to justice perpetrators of the November 2008 terror attack on Mumbai. He also expressed happiness regarding the progress being made so far in bilateral relations and noted that the era of accusation and counter accusation should be left behind.

“We are happy with the progress made so far,” Dr. Singh told reporters in a brief interaction after the half an hour meeting. “We had very good meeting. We are moving in a positive direction ahead,” he added.

The two leaders met today ahead of the inauguration of the two-day summit of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation in the Addu atoll islands. The meeting between Singh and Gilani comes after they met in March in Mohali on the margins of the Indo-Pak World Cup semi-final tie.
