Singh, Gilani likely to meet in Thimphu
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Thimphu, Apr 26: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani are expected to meet here on the margins of the SAARC Summit, during which the Indian leader is likely to seek an update on the probe and trial in the 26/11 case being conducted in Pakistan.
“We will be coming under one roof. So, if we come at the same time, it is obvious we will run into each other,” Singh told reporters in New Delhi.
Arriving here for the two-day SAARC Summit beginning Wednesday, External Affairs Minister S M Krishna said “I am not ruling it out,” when asked if the Prime Ministers of the two countries would meet in Thimphu.
The minister noted that Heads of States and Governments are going to be under the same roof for the next couple of days for the multilateral meeting and there will be bilateral meetings.
On the issues to be discussed if the meeting takes place, he said, “Let’s wait and watch, how things are going to work out.”
He, however, added that “all bilateral issues between India and Pakistan will be discussed as and when the Prime Ministers meet”.
