Attari (Amritsar): Pakistan Home Secretary
Chaudhary Qamar Zaman arrived here on Sunday for talks with his
Indian counterpart GK Pillai and said such efforts would
enhance peaceful relations between the two sides.

"Such efforts between the two sides would enhance peaceful
relations and promote people-to-people contact," Zaman, who
headed a six-member delegation, told reporters at the
Attari-Wagah border.

He said his meeting with Pillai was aimed at promoting and
strengthening peace between the two neighbours.

To questions on the agenda before the meeting beginning
tomorrow, he said all core issues would be discussed in a
peaceful atmosphere.

Officials said in Delhi that the two-day meeting will
deliberate on a wide range of issues, including Islamabad`s
reluctance in co-operating fully in bringing to justice the
perpetrators of 26/11 attacks.

Appreciating the initiative of Prime Minister Manmohan
Singh in extending invitations to his Pakistan counterpart and
the President to watch the World Cup match between the cricket
teams of the two countries on Indian soil, Zaman hoped it
would create peaceful atmosphere between India and Pakistan.

Zaman said he would try his level best to watch the match
at Mohali on Wednesday during his official tour in India and
wished all success to the Pakistani team.

Earlier, on his arrival at the Attari border, Zaman was
accorded a warm welcome by senior officials in the district
and those from the BSF.
