Islamabad, July 3 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani would meet Dr. Manmohan Singh on the sidelines of the of the Non-Aligned Movement summit in Sharm El-Sheikh in Egypt on July 16, the Pakistan Foreign Office has said.

The Foreign Office spokesman, Abdul Basit said that the foreign secretaries of both countries would also meet during the summit, The Daily Times reports.

Speculations about resumption of the Indo-Pak bilateral talks, which was stalled after the November 2008 Mumbai terror strikes, gained momentum recently when Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh met Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari on the sidelines of Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) and Brazil-Russia-India-China (BRIC) summits in Russia's Yekaterinburg city last month.

During the meeting, Singh told Zardari in clear cut terms that his country must stop terrorists from launching attacks on India.

Both the leaders vowed to meet again during the NAM summit, but later it was announced that Gilani would represent Pakistan instead of Zardari. (ANI)
