On Board Special Aircraft: External
Affairs Minister SM Krishna on Friday said Indo-Pak relations
will "certainly improve" after the visit of his Pakistani
counterpart Hina Rabbani Khar.

"This was the roadmap that we had worked out and I am
very happy that she came to India and that certainly will
improve bilateral relations between our two countries,"
Krishna told reporters on his way back from Maldives.

Krishna said he would make a suo-moto statement in
both houses of the parliament on August 1 on his talks with
Khar.

"With reference to various issues that we discussed
with Mrs Khar during the course of her interaction would be
subject matter of a suo-moto statement that I am going to make
on August 1 on both houses of the parliament," he said.

However, the minister said one has to wait and see how
India-Pakistan relations will improve after the talks.

"I think the proof of the pudding is in the eating. So
we will have to wait and see how things will move thereafter,"
Krishna said.

The Krishna-Khar talks held in New Delhi on July 27
yielded new Confidence Building Measures including increasing
cross-LoC trading days and expanding travel to include tourism
and religious aspects apart from relaxing permit conditions
for travel by people of Jammu and Kashmir to the other side of
LoC by having a system of six-month multiple entry.
