New Delhi: Pakistan`s Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar began her two-day visit to India Tuesday, saying she was hopeful the two countries can move forward as "good, friendly neighbours who have a stake in each other`s future".

Khar will hold wide-ranging talks with her Indian counterpart SM Krishna Wednesday.

The 34-year-old Khar, Pakistan`s first woman foreign foreign minister and the youngest, was warmly received by Sharat Sabharwal, India`s high commissioner to Pakistan, and YK Sinha, joint secretary in charge of Pakistan in the foreign office.

They were joined by Pakistan`s High Commissioner to India Shahid Malik and senior officials of the mission.

"This is my first trip to India and New Delhi as the foreign minister of Pakistan. I bring the good wishes of the people of Pakistan and the government of Pakistan," Khar told reporters at the airport after touching down in a special flight.

She hoped that the two countries "have learnt lessons from history, but are not burdened by them", setting a positive tone for the talks.

"I hope we can move forward as good, friendly neighbours who have stake in each other`s future and both the countries understand their responsibilities to the region and within the region,"
