New Delhi, Apr 21: Pakistan Wednesday said that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his counterpart Yusuf Raza Gilani would meet in Bhutan next week on the sidelines of SAARC summit and hoped some “positive results” would come out of that to set trends for the future.
“I am sure that meeting between both the Prime Ministers in Bhutan will help us to set some trends for future and I am sure there will be some positive results of that meeting,” Pakistan’s Minister for Population Firdous Ashiq Awan said here.
