I've come to Pakistan with an open mind: Nirupama Rao

“I have come to Pakistan with an open mind and a constructive spirit in order to work towards building trust and confidence in our relationship and thereby leading to an eventual normalization of relations for the well-being and prosperity of our two peoples,” Rao said in her arrival statement.

She reached Islamabad Thursday morning to hold discussions for the next two days, and will return to India Saturday afternoon.

She added that this was an “important visit as it marks the penultimate leg of the resumed dialogue process before the visit of the foreign minister of Pakistan to India by July 2011”.

Rao said that the discussions would include “issues that have been mandated to us by our leadership, namely peace and security, including confidence building measures; Jammu & Kashmir and promotion of friendly exchanges”.

“I bring with me the best wishes of the people and government of India for the people and government of Pakistan. We wish to see a stable, peaceful and prosperous Pakistan,” she added.
