New Delhi: Pakistan intends to invite External Affairs Minister SM Krishna to Islamabad where it will make "certain proposals" to bridge the "trust deficit" between the two countries.

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said holding of talks between him and Krishna as agreed by the Prime Ministers of the two countries in Thimphu was "very urgent". He would telephone Krishna after Parliament session ends tomorrow.

"I intend to invite him to Islamabad but I have no issues with that. If he is occupied and he cannot come, then I have no issue in coming to Delhi," he said in an interview to a TV channel.

"I think both sides would acknowledge the fact that there is a trust deficit and the Prime Ministers have asked the two foreign ministers to bridge that trust deficit. I have certain proposals which I am going to share with Krishna when I get an opportunity to meet with him." Qureshi said.
