New Delhi, Apr 21 (ANI): Visiting Pakistan Minister for Population Welfare Firdous Ashiq Awan met Lok Sabha speaker Meira Kumar here on Tuesday.

Pakistan's High Commissioner to India Shahid Malik accompanied Awan.

Both leaders reportedly discussed a wide range of bilateral issues.

Earlier, Awan said that Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani should hold interaction at the upcoming South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) summit.

"I cannot predict this, but I am sure as per their agenda it should be one of the most convenient programme that they should interact more and more. Not a photogenic meeting, it should be some agenda-oriented meeting," she added.

The SAARC summit will be held in Bhutan on April 28 and 29.

Awan, who is on a five-day visit to India, also said Indian tennis player Sania Mirza and Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik would be declared as brand ambassadors of Pakistan's Population Welfare Ministry. (ANI)
