Gilani invites Indian PM to visit Pak
Thimphu: Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani
on Thursday invited his counterpart Manmohan Singh to visit Pakistan
and the Indian leader responded saying he would love to do so.
"Prime Minister Gilani invited him (Singh) to visit
Pakistan. He said he would love to visit Pakistan," Foreign
Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi told reporters here.
Qureshi was full of praise for Singh whom he described as
an "academic and a visionary".
"He (Singh) has his heart in the right place. He is a
well-meaning man. He is an academic. He is a visionary. He
wants to move on," the Pakistan Foreign Minister said after a
meeting between the two Prime Ministers on the margins of the
SAARC Summit here.
Qureshi said that during the Singh-Gilani talks, he saw
"positive spirit" on both sides and the two Prime Ministers
were chatting as friends.
The then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee had visited
Pakistan in 1999 and there had been no such visit since then.
