Krishna to visit Pakistan today
New Delhi, Sep 6: External Affairs Minister SM Krishna heads for Islamabad to meet his Pakistan counterpart Hina Rabbani Khar in yet another attempt at fence-mending between the two wary South Asian neighbours.
Krishna begins his three-day visit to Pakistan Friday. While the foreign secretaries - India's Ranjan Mathai and Pakistan's Jalil Abbas Jilani - will meet Friday, the foreign ministers will hold talks Saturday.
Krishna, who was last in Pakistan in July 2011, spends some time in Lahore Sunday on the way back. He will meet with political, business and civil society leaders in Lahore in an opportunity to feel the pulse of Pakistani civil society.
Both ministers will also co-chair the plenary of the India-Pakistan Joint Commission Saturday.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who met Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari on the sidelines of the NAM summit in Tehran last week, said the expeditious conclusion of the Mumbai terror attack trial will be a "major" confidence building measure in bilateral relations. IANS
