Islamabad, July 3 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani today said that meeting with his Indian counterpart Manmohan Singh on the sidelines of NAM summit in Egypt would be an opportunity to strengthen bilateral ties.

After presiding over convocation at a college in Islamabad, Gilani said Pakistan wants to maintain friendly relations with all its neighbours, including India and Afghanistan.

He expressed hope that the outcome of his meeting with Singh on the margins of Non-Aligned Movement meet in Sharm El-Sheikh would be "positive."

The meeting with Singh would be an opportunity to strengthen relations between the two countries, he said.

Asked about the operations against the Taliban in the northwestern Malakand division, Gilani said the success achieved in securing areas from terrorists was a result of the sacrifices made by the army.

After the completion of the operations, a military cantonment will be established in Swat and the capacity of law enforcement agencies will be enhanced, he said. (ANI)
