Statement by External Affairs Minister S M Krishna on arrival at Islamabad
I am very happy to visit Islamabad at the invitation of the Hon’ble Foreign Minister of Pakistan and my esteemed colleague Ms. Hina Rabbani Khar.
I bring a message of goodwill from India for the people of Pakistan.
I wish to reiterate the desire of India to see a stable and prosperous Pakistan living in peace with itself and the world. That would be in the best interest of everyone.
The leadership of India and Pakistan have mandated building of trust and confidence between our two countries. We are committed to finding solutions of all issues that have beset our relationship through peaceful bilateral dialogue, while we look to the future where our two countries are able to live together in an atmosphere of friendliness and all-round cooperation, free from terror and violence.
My endeavour during this visit will be to promote the objectives that I have just mentioned.
