Open to Pak visit if something ‘solid`: PM
Onboard Air India One: Welcoming Pakistan`s
move to liberalise trade with India, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday said he could visit that country if there is
"something solid" to celebrate.
On his meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister Yusuf Raza
Gilani on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit in
Seoul, Singh said he thanked him for the trade concessions his
government had made to India recently.
"I had a good meeting with him. I thanked him for the
trade concessions that they have announced," the Prime
Minister said on board his special aircraft while returning
from a four-day visit to South Korea.
Singh said Gilani asked him when was he coming to
Pakistan on an official visit.
"He (Gilani) said when are you coming there (Pakistan).
So, I said let us do something solid so that we can
celebrate," Singh said.
Pakistan had recently announced its decision to
liberalize trade with India by moving from positive list to a
shorter negative list of goods.
