Indian PM praises Gilani`s `positive role`

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday lauded his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani for playing a "positive role" in improving bilateral relations.



Islamabad: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
on Monday lauded his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani for
playing a "positive role" in improving bilateral relations.

Singh`s "gratitude" for Gilani`s role in improving
bilateral ties were conveyed to the Pakistani Prime Minister
by Indian High Commissioner Sharat Sabharwal during a meeting
here, an official statement said.

Sabharwal also conveyed the Indian Prime Minister`s
"good wishes" to Gilani.

Gilani reciprocated by extending good wishes to the
Indian Prime Minister and inquired about the health of
Congress president Sonia Gandhi and wished her an early
recovery, the statement said.

There was no official word from either side on other
aspects of the discussions between Gilani and the Indian
envoy.

Since the two countries resumed their peace process after
a gap of over two years in the wake of the 2008 Mumbai terror
attacks, they have taken several steps to normalise relations.

Following Commerce Minister Anand Sharma`s recent visit
to Islamabad, the Pakistan government approved a move to
switch over to a negative list regime for trade, paving the
way for giving India Most Favoured Nation status by the
beginning of next year.
