Islamabad, May 3: Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has agreed to talk on every issue including Kashmir.
While speaking in the National Assembly session on Monday, the Prime Minister appreciated the Parliament for passing the 18th amendment unanimously.
Gilani had held a one-on-one meeting with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the Butanese capital Thimphu on the sidelines of the SAARC summit last week.
Gilani also said the security situation and economy are two important issues faced by Pakistan. He said that terrorism had affected the economy of the country, but a stable government had given the world confidence to invest in Pakistan.
The Prime Minister said government is not responsible for power crisis in the country.
Earlier, PML-N Leader Chaudhry Nisar called on the government to present the United Nation’s report on Benazir’s murder in the parliament.
Speaking during the National Assembly session, he also called on the government to clearly state its stance on the report.
He said this prior to PML-N’s walkout from the NA session against the hike in oil prices. (AFP)
