When Prime Ministers Singh and Gilani met on 30 March, they committed to increase contacts between their respective governments in order to build confidence and progress their bilateral relationship. This has since resulted in a number of meetings that have covered trade relations as well as regional and security issues. India and Pakistan have regarded the recent talks as constructive, and they have agreed some confidence building measures following the dialogue.

We welcome and encourage this continuing development and renewed engagement between India and Pakistan.
