ISLAMABAD Aiming at bridging the trust deficit between the two nuclear-armed neighbours, Indian Foreign Minister SM Krishna arrived here on Wednesday on a three-day visit. I am here on a mission to restore trust and bridge the gap between Pakistan and India, SM Krishna told the journalists at the airport soon after his arrival. The visiting dignitary further said that he was optimistic about the upcoming session of talks which, according to him, would yield fruit. We hope to discuss all issues of mutual interest and concern that can contribute to restoring trust and building confidence in our bilateral relationship, Krishna said. According to the reports emanating from New Delhi, SM Krishna told the Indian media hours before his departure to Islamabad that he would ask Pakistani authorities to comment on the confessions made by terror suspect David Coleman Headley over the Mumbai terror attack. Krishna told Indian Press that he would ask his Pakistani counterpart to take action against Hafiz Saeed whose frequent anti-India statements were harming the efforts to improve India-Pakistan ties. India expects some response (on Headleys confessions), the Minister told the Indian journalists, just two hours before arriving here on a three-day visit. I am here to find out just what that response is, he said. According to the sources, the Indian Foreign Minister during his three-day visit will hold talks with Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, President Asif Ali Zardari and PM Yousuf Raza Gilani. According to the insiders, SM Krishna is looking forward to seek progress from Pakistan on the issue of terrorism, which was raised by the Indian Home Minister P Chidambaram with his Pakistani counterpart Rehman Malik last month in Islamabad. Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi is expected to raise issue of Indian violation of human rights in the Occupied Jammu & Kashmir. As Pakistan and India have managed to restore high-level contacts, the foreign policy experts are describing Krishnas visit to Pakistan as important as it would mark a new beginning of a journey to build a prosperous, friendly and cooperative relationship between the two countries. India had said it was committed to resolving all issues with Pakistan through peaceful dialogue based on mutual trust and confidence, Krishna said. On the other hand, SM Krishna has also said that his country wants long-term friendly relations with Pakistan. I have come with a message of peace and friendship from the people of India and we hope to undertake this voyage of peace, however long and arduous, jointly with the government and people of Pakistan, Krishna told media men in Islamabad soon after landing here. AFP adds: Indias Foreign Minister SM Krishna on Wednesday arrived in Pakistan saying that he brought a message of peace and friendship but calling on Islamabad to act decisively against terrorism. I am carrying with me a message of peace and friendship and we hope to undertake the voyage of peace, however long and arduous, the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency quoted him as telling reporters in Islamabad. Krishna and his Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi are scheduled to meet Thursday in the first foreign ministers talks since New Delhi suspended a four-year peace process after the 2008 Mumbai attacks. Pakistan must realise that India harbours no ill-will against it and the cancer of terrorism needs to be rooted out completely, Krishna said. There can be no selective efforts against this scourge. There is a clear and present danger from terrorist groups that needs to be appreciated and acted upon decisively, he said in the PTI report. On the eve of the meeting, Indian Home Secretary GK Pillai reportedly accused Pakistani intelligence of overseeing the Mumbai attacks during which 10 gunmen went on a 60-hour rampage in the Indian city, leaving 166 people dead. Krishna said he hoped to receive feedback on issues of terrorism raised by Pillai, particularly in the light of discussions he had during a recent visit to Pakistan in the context of Headleys interrogation. Thursdays talks will focus on how to resume India and Pakistans peace process, which collapsed in the wake of the Mumbai attacks. A Pakistani anti-terrorism court has charged seven suspects in connection with the Mumbai attacks, including alleged mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and alleged LeT operative Zarar Shah, but Pakistan has said it needs more evidence. We are approaching the meeting with a positive mindset, foreign ministry spokesman Abdul Basit said. The Krishna-Qureshi talks on Thursday will be the third major contact between the two countries in six months.
