Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani has said that his Indian counterpart Dr Manmohan Singh really wants to resolve important bilateral issues.
Lauding Dr Singh`s intentions to have good relations with Pakistan, Gilani said Singh was a "sensible and sane" person who has often expressed that he wanted to do "something really positive" for both countries.
Gilani was responding to a question by a senior civil servant of the 94th national management course who quoted private sources as saying that Singh was personally spearheading the move to promote good relations with Pakistan.
