India and Pakistan need to develop trust as their relations are very important, Pakistan Foreign Minister Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri said on Monday after meeting External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee.
After the informal luncheon meeting with Mukherjee, Kasuri said he was happy to see a senior Congress leader in charge of External Affairs Ministry as it would help in the task that the two sides are engaged in.
"We both agreed that India-Pakistan relations are very important. We need to develop trust," Kasuri told reporters with Mukherjee standing by his side.
Mukherjee will travel to Pakistan on January 13 to invite President Pervez Musharraf for the SAARC summit to be held in early April and will also hold "substantive talks" with Kasuri.
