Addu (Maldives): Jail term is something that usually does not figure in talks between two heads of government, but in the case of Maldivian President Mohammad Nasheed and Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, it did.

Gilani and Nasheed shared their stories while in jail during their meeting held here yesterday on the sidelines of the 17th SAARC summit.

Nasheed told Gilani that when he was in jail, he received Pakistani mangoes and said that jail is a very good training institution.

Gilani told the President that he also remained in jail for five years and wrote a book.

Gilani added that if he had more time in jail he would have written more books.
