India committed to resolve all issues with Pak: PM

Singh made the remarks in a message of greetings sent to his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani on the occasion of Pakistan Day, which will be observed tomorrow.

"We sincerely desire to have peaceful and cooperative relations between our two countries. We are committed to resolving all outstanding issues with Pakistan through bilateral dialogue," Singh was quoted as saying in a statement issued by Gilani's office.

"I am hopeful that the current dialogue process would lead to peace, progress and prosperity of the entire region," he said. Singh also conveyed "felicitations and warm greetings" to the people and government of the country on the occasion of Pakistan Day.

India and Pakistan recently agreed to revive their dialogue process, which was stalled in the wake of the 2008 Mumbai attacks that were blamed on the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba terror group. The Home and Interior Secretaries of the two countries will meet in New Delhi later this month to kick-start the process. Pakistan Day commemorates the adoption of the Lahore Resolution that led to the creation of the country and the adoption of the country's first constitution.
